What an amazing concept! Charles Ardai, founder of Juno, and an amazingly adept mystery writer himself, had the idea to rejuvenate and re-introduce the little pulp novelas that graced newsstand shelves and airport book racks n the 50's and '60s. The covers are noted for their usual depiction of a femme fatale, a tough guy and a weapon or some other form of peril. The artwork is always great and the stories, sometimes yes, sometimes no. Voila! Hard Case Crime was borne out of a labor of love and as an homage to the old pulps. With a combination of re-issued classics and new books written by aspiring and established authors the dream materialized. The books were originally produced and distributed by Dorchester Publishing in combination with Ardai's publishing concern, but financial hardship seemed ready to doom the enterprise after almost seventy books. Fortunately, UK Publisher Titan Books stepped into the breech and resumed cultivation and distribution of new titles. The book is 297 of 500 signed and numbered copies of the Limited Edition hardcover of Fifty-To-One (issue price-$45.00). As New Book/As New DJ. Signed by Author to the limitation page.

Celebrating 50 Years of Hard Case Crime!

Okay, not really. But what if, instead of having been founded 50 books ago, Hard Case Crime had been founded 50 years ago, by a rascal out to make a quick buck off the popularity of pulp fiction? Such a fellow might make a few enemies especially after publishing a supposed non-fiction account of a heist at a Mob-run nightclub, actually penned by an 18-year-old showgirl. With both the cops and the crooks after them, our heroes are about to learn that reading and writing pulp novels is a lot more fun than living them...

Fifty-to-One will feature a full color signature page, plus full color endsheets depicting the 49 previous books in the Hard Case Crime Series,

In addition, each chapter of Fifty-to-One bears the title of a previous Hard Case Crime book, including such gems as Lucky at Cards (Lawrence Block), Lemons Never Lie (Richard Stark), The Colorado Kid (Stephen King), and Gun Work (David J. Schow), among others.
