Out With a Bang

After an almost six-year run, the final, “Pulp Noir” edition of Dave Zeltserman’s e-zine, Hardluck Stories, has just been posted. Edited this time out by the estimable Ed Gorman, the issue’s contents include contributions from Bill Crider (“Crossroads”), John McFetridge (“Barbotte”), James Reasoner (“The Red Reef”), and Sandra Sholl-Ellis (“If the Shoe Fits”). Zeltserman also offers a last word of thanks to the many people who have helped Hardluck along all of these years.

I’m particularly fond of the playful cover illustration, by Jean-Pierre Jacquet, which shows Gorman and Zeltserman in a fix that would’ve baffled the best heroes of the pulp age.
