From the busy hands and creative mind of David Cranmer comes a new anthology under his Beat To A Pulp banner. This time around, it is Beat To A Pulp: HARDBOILED 2, a follow-up to last year's popular and award-winning BTAP: HARDBOILED (1).

 #2 once again features thirteen tough tales of mayhem, murder, and various dastardly deeds. The contributors cover a wide range of authors like Charles Boeckman and Paul S. Powers, from the  "golden age" of pulps, to some of today's most exciting newer talent—and even a couple of in-betweeners, including yours truly with a story of one of Joe Hannibal's last adventures while still operating out of Illinois, before relocating to Nebraska where he currently still finds plenty of trouble.
Co-editor (along with Scott D. Parker) David Cranmer does double-duty, under his Edward A. Grainger pseudonym, with an imaginative Cash Laramie story set in 1911. An aging Cash, somewhat past his prime as a deputy U.S. marshal in 1800s Wyoming, shows he still has the vinegar and toughness to come out on top when he tangles with some bad hombres on the Mississippi River.

Thirteen hardboiled gems available now for Kindle and Nook at the bargain price of $1.49. Soon also to be available in a paperback print format. A lineup I'm proud to be part of, and one I'm confident you will enjoy.
Recommend you give it a try.
