Hard Case Crime Revisited
Here's a quick follow-up to the look at Glen Orbik's covers for Hard Case Crime.
Another artist Hard Case use a lot, and who does sterling work, is Gregory Manchess. I've read the two John Lange rediscoveries Manchess has provided the covers for.
Lange was an early pseudonym for Michael Crichton, and he should have stuck with the fast, funny pulp crime rather than the portentous climate-change-denial rubbish he seems more interested in these days.
A close look at the cover of Zero Cool revealed something interesting (besides the bikini babe). What is she reading?
