JOE SCINTILLA. 1930s privvate eye.

Hard-boiled. Creepy old houses. Blonde bombshells. Thrill-a-minute. Trouble is his business.

Meet the e-pulp, same as the old pulp!

With the advent of all these spontaneously published digital reprints and revised editions now available at the click of a mouse, I imagine the suicide rate of dedicated bibliographers and serious librarians will be steadily increasing in the years ahead, but for now, let's just sit back, crack open a cool one and immerse ourselves in the tsunami of quick, fast reads swamping us.

Didn't like that one? Wait a minute or two while someone cranks out another.

And if there's any doubt that the authors aren't aware of what they're doing, well, Joshi even repackages the second and third mysteries, previously published as e-books a few months earlier, as a classic Ace double. On paper, even!
