Kind Words for Stark House
I was returning a book to the library yesterday, when the Stark House Press reprint of Gil Brewer's Wild to Possess and A Taste for Sincaught my eye on the new arrivals shelf. I don't need anything else to read, but I picked it up because I've never actually seen one Stark House's books before. I'm impressed. It's got Brewer's bibliography up front, and three essays on Brewer, including one from his ex-wife, and a truly excellent one from Bill Pronzini. It's the sort of thing any pulp fan would love to have.
Welcome to the Indie Crime Blog. As the name implies, this blog is dedicated to reviews of crime fiction published by independent presses. There are many books published every year that seem to be ignored for a variety of reasons. The books sections of newspapers are getting smaller. Bookstores give more shelf space to more established authors. I could go on, but you get it.My intent is to review books both old and new in the hopes that some deserving writers and worthy publishers will gain some exposure.
