    Looks like No Exit is all about Robert Parker these days.  Virtually all of the older stuff is gone except Cain's Fast One.  Bummer.  They used to have all kinds of rarely encountered authors (Spicer, Whitfield, Latimer, etc). Nice to see Kem Nunn there, though.

    I discovered Raoul Whitfield via No Exit editions, and they seem to have a produced a great little catalogue (in both MMPB and TPB size) over the years, including Paul Cain and other of the classics.

    I love their WeeGee-style photo covers, and my only complaint is that their bindings (at least in some of the older books) seem pretty shoddy, with the glue cracking badly. In a few cases my No Exit books have become No Exit portfolios.

    A list of their current titles can be found on their website: http://www.noexit. php

    Seems like some of the older titles have gone out of print, and I have never heard of some of the authors in the current catalogue, so if there are any recommendations, let us know.

    I always keep an eye out for No Exit books when I travel to London, and I was lucky to have found an apparently unread copy of Fake I.D. a few years back.

    Best, Mark Nevins
