That's the one problem with small presses that makes me wait until
their titles are effectively available through Amazon or similar
outlets instead of pre-ordering. I've had too many unpleasant
experiences paying for books that don't come out when they're supposed
to or sometimes never do.
That's why I was hesitant to mention these two hardboiled titles from
Moonstone that should have come out but still haven't to my knowledge:
Sex, Lies and Private Eyes (edited by M.A. Collins and with a pretty
good lineup of writers)
Partners in Crime by C.J. Henderson and Joe Gentile (the hook here is
the use many characters from old time pulps and radio. Henderson, btw,
is a pretty good hardboiled writer that I haven't seen mentioned on
