No, but I've seen the Truffaut film, with Charles Aznovoice

Get it. I think everyone on this list will agree.

It's a crime imprint. I think they do new stuff as well as reprints, although there will be Black Lizard experts on the list who can tell you more accurately what their game is.

I picked up a second-hand Black Lizard of another Goodis title, Nightfall. There's a great cover (which you don't often see on contemporary books) which looks like an old Avon with orange bands at the top and at the bottom.

It would be great if publishers could use the original artwork when running reprints.
