NEW ARRIVALS: BLACK LIZARD PRESS

The Black Lizard imprint has consistently published cream of the crop crime fiction, both original titles and reprints of classic out-of-print and unknown noir. These are not mysteries where bumbling old ladies whimsically solve murders, nor are these hard boiled detective novels where the hard-as-nails detective wisecracks around and scores a hot dame. These are much darker stories- the protagonists are often small-time crooks or average joes thrust into desperate situations, depressed and depraved and unsympathetic, with casual violence and lives spiralling into the black abyss. The authors all delve into these worlds in their own ways, ranging from the terse and tough Paul Cain to Barry Gifford's hallucinatory existentialism to David Goodis' hopeless down-and-outers to W.L. Heath's small town dramas. All deal with the uglier side of humanity and are all highly recommended.
