♥ Book Title : A Diet of Treacle
☯ Full Synopsis : "A vintage tale of lust and drugs in old Greenwich Village—roaring back after fifty years out of print Sick of living respectably with her grandmother, Anita Carbone hops a downtown train. She finds Greenwich Village—the Village of Kerouac and Dylan, but also of Joe and Shank, two small-time dope peddlers more than happy to welcome a square into their midst. But after a few weeks in Joe’s bed, she finds that with sex, drugs, and grime come danger, and that it’s harder to get back uptown than it was to come down. Lawrence Block is the master of the thriller, and this early novel is a wild tour of a vanished scene: an authentic trip that burns with the slow intensity of a roach’s last drag. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection, and a new afterword written by the author."Article| Lawrence Block| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Killing Castro
☯ Full Synopsis : "BECAUSE IN 1961, NO ONE WOULD HAVE CALLED FIDEL CASTRO THE RETIRING TYPE. "There were five of them, each prepared to kill, each with his own reasons for accepting what might well be a suicide mission. The pay? $20,000 apiece. The mission? Find a way into Cuba and kill Castro. "This breathtaking thriller, originally published the year before the Cuban Missile Crisis under a pen name Lawrence Block never used before or since, is the rarest of Block’s books – and still a work of chilling relevance all these years later, with Castro and Cuba once again commanding headlines." The book was universally ignored when it first appeared, but Hard Case Crime’s reprint was very well received. Publishers Weekly, in a starred review: “Passages discussing Castro’s life and times add depth to this intense, taut thriller, just as good now as it was in 1961. Booklist: “As a kind of alternate pulp history, the novel works just fine, with plenty of blood and bullets and, as always with Block, a fine feel for character. A curiosity, yes, but also an entertaining thriller.” This Classic Crime Library ebook edition of Killing Castro includes as a bonus the opening chapter of the next book in the series, A Diet of Treacle."Article| Lawrence Block| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : The Boy From Treacle Bumstead
☯ Full Synopsis : "This brilliantly written memoir takes the reader on a journey into the past, to a rural England long gone, when horses worked the fields and small boys spent most of their time outdoors. Ken Sears was born in 1934 to a poor farming family in Hertfordshire - the fifth child of what would be eleven. He learns how to fend for himself at an early age. His boyhood life coincides with wartime, evacuees and American GIs arriving in his home town of Hemel Hempstead (the 'Treacle Bumpstead' of the title). At the age of nine he is caught stealing eggs and accused of killing a chicken (which he denies to this day) and is sent to reform school for five years. So begins a punishing existence, but it breeds a tough teenager, and after learning the trade of bricklaying he is called up to do his National Service in 1952. So begins his adventures in the Army, in Europe and Korea, where the ever-plucky Ken - who has an eye for the ladies and is always landing himself in trouble - finds not-always legal ways to make life that bit easier. After the Army he comes back to England and sets up a building business. From there he sees his home town change out of all recognition. The story is a characterful testament to the resourceful generation of the men who did National Service, fought wars, built towns and stood up to everything in their way. Ken's story reads like 'Commando Comics meets Fred Dibnah'."Article| Ken Sears| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Four Lives at the Crossroads
☯ Full Synopsis : "FOUR LIVES AT THE CROSSROADS is the latest addition to the Collection of Classic Erotica. But it came very close to being shoehorned instead into the Classic Crime Library. Back in the late 1950s and early 60s, when I was finding myself as a writer and producing a great quantity of books under pen names, some of the books I wrote were as much crime fiction as they were erotica. Indeed, several of those titles by Andrew Shaw and Sheldon Lord have since been republished under my own name by Hard Case Crime and Subterranean Press—and subsequently astonished me by garnering respectful reviews. BORDERLINE, LUCKY AT CARDS, and A DIET OF TREACLE are examples, and so to a degree is my forthcoming Hard Case title, SINNER MAN. A little light editing made them acceptable crime fiction for a contemporary body of readers. FOUR LIVES AT THE CROSSROADS almost made the cut. After Charles Ardai at Hard Case considered it and ultimately decided against it, I weighed adding it to my Classic Crime Library. A dark, savage tale of an armed robbery gone wrong, it's not a bad fit for the CCL—but the erotic content is high, and the editing required to make it less an erotic novel and more a crime novel seemed disproportionate. The metaphor that occurred to me, I must admit, was that of putting lipstick on a pig. I did some light editing anyway, much of which consisted of reversing the helpful contributions of some unnamed editor at Nightstand Books. So here's FOUR LIVES AT THE CROSSROADS, available for the first time since its initial appearance in 1962. I can but hope you'll enjoy it. This ebook edition of FOUR LIVES AT THE CROSSROADS, #19 in the Collection of Classic Erotica, includes as a bonus the opening chapter of the next book in the series, CIRCLE OF SINNERS."Article| Lawrence Block| Statement ..."
