Hard Case Crime Partners with Barnes & Noble for Discussion Group

The latest Hard Case Crime newsletter is chock full of news. The biggest item being their new online crime book club in partnership with Barnes and Noble. It goes public Oct. 1, and Jason Starr, Ken Bruen, Allan Guthrie, Duane Swierczynski, Charlie Huston, and Megan Abbott are going to be participating. When it goes live it will be, so set a bookmark if you're so inclined.

Also, HCC has announced two new titles. The first, by Max Allan Collins, is called The First Quarry, and will presumably be about the first adventure of the titular hitman. The second is The Max, the final installment in the Starr/Bruen collaboration that includes Bust and Slide. The Max will take the characters from the first two novels and drop them in prison, which is where they belong really.

Hi Nathan,
This is a great blog and thanks for the mention about THE MAX...Not sure about the final part though. We may have a few more tricks up our sleeves!
Cheers, Jason Starr
