Stephen King's Pulp Fiction

By EDWARD WYATT Published: March 1, 2005 http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/01/books/01books-king.html

A new novel by Stephen King, to be published in October, will begin the second season of the Hard Case Crime line of noir thrillers, a series that is bringing back classics of the pulp paperback genre as well as publishing new pulp fiction. Mr. King's new novel, "The Colorado Kid," is the story of two newspaper reporters and their investigation of the death of a man on an island off Maine. It will be issued only in paperback, as are all of Hard Case Crime's novels, complete with a stylized cover reminiscent of the noir novels of old. In its first season, which runs through September, the company will publish 12 novels, seven of them reissues of out-of-print thrillers, including the forthcoming "Home Is the Sailor" by Day Keene, a well-known practitioner of the pulp genre in the 1950's. Hard Case Crime will publish 15 more books, about half of them reissues, in its second year, said Charles Ardai, editor and a founder of the series.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< Well, nobody said noir had to be brief.
