Issue 1 Giveaway!

That's right--we're giving away five copies of issue 1. Just drop a comment below with your favorite book in the Hard Case Crime catalog or your favorite All Due Respect story. We'll put the names in a non-metaphorical hat and pick five of them.

Issue 1 of All Due Respect has the best of crime fiction today, including an original story and interview with featured author Chris F. Holm. The rest of the lineup: a brutal story from Thuglit editor Todd Robinson; the deeply disturbing “Amanda Will Be Fine” by Renee Asher Pickup; a revenge tale by the King of Brit Grit, Paul D. Brazill; the strangely satisfying combination of yoga and organized crime from Travis Richardson; a still-beating heart ripped straight out of the Amazon River basin by Mike Miner; and Walter Conley kicks a couple of clueless Connecticut thugs to the curb.

Plus reviews of Steve Weddle’s Country Hardball and Holm’s Collector series—and an entire section devoted to the books of legendary paperback publisher, Hard Case Crime.

All Due Respect and your eyes: a combination even better than doughnuts and coffee.

Check it out at for Kindle at Amazon, Amazon UK, and a print version is now available.

  1. It's a hard task to pick just one favorite story here on ADR, but I do like Patti Abbott's A Perfect Day.

    And again, just HCC? Christa Faust's Money Shot.

  2. Hard choices. That's what life's all about, right? Hard Case Crime: The Wounded and the Slain, David Goodis.

  3. Tough call, but I'll go with Lawrence Block's Grifter's Game. Joe Marlin is the perfect sleazeball pulp protagonist who gets himself in too deep.

  4. I think I have to go with Patti Abbott's "Is That You?". And considering how many great stories there are, that isn't an easy choice.

  5. My favorite Hard Case book is Say It With Bullets by Richard Powell. A tough revenge story well told. Though Grifters game is pretty awesome and so is Fade To Blonde and Money Shot and Choke hold and .. And . . . And ...and

  6. Joyland is not my favorite. James M. Cain's Cocktail Waitress is so far, but I have a long way to go in the series.

  8. King's The Colorado Kid--because you just can't explain every d---n thing in this world. And Crichton's / John Lange's Easy Go, which was sort of like a union of Mickey Spillane and Robin Cook.
