Quarry's paperbacks

  
I discovered Max Allan Collins' "Quarry" books about a year ago and I am slowly working my way thru the series. There's 12 books so far (the first one was published in 1976 and the latest one was published recently). The series is about an ex Vietnam vet who turns pro hit-man. Apparently, Collins was the first author to make a hit-man a main character.There's a new tv series but I'm not gonna check it out until I've got thru all 12 books.

  1. These covers are really great! I never read any of these so promise to write some reviews as you plow your way through the series.

    Cheers

    1. Hej Martin!
      Lad os bare tale vores vemodige sprog from the old country. ^_^ Ja, omslagene er rigtig gode. Alle bøgerne fra dette enmandsforlag får covers, der er lavet, som dengang man godt kunne finde ud af at lave coole pulp-forsider. Selve bøgerne er en blanding af genudgivelser af gamle glemte pulp-romaner i kriminalgenren, og også nye bøger. Sjovt nok kommer "Quarry"-serien ind under begge, da de første bøger kom i 70'erne, hvorefter Collins holdt en pause på 30 år og nu skriver dem direkte til Hard Case Crime-forlaget. Jeg leger med tanken om en længere artikel helt til slut (jeg har netop bestilt de sidste 7 bøger, som jeg ikke havde, fra Bookdepository i UK), men kommer nok også med korte omtaler hen ad vejen.
