upon a time there was a journalist name Jim Fielder who had written a
non-fiction book about some particularly nasty people in New Mexico.
Jim also had a novel he was working on, one that Stark House was
considering publishing. Before the manuscript was ready, however, a
horrible tragedy occurred to Jim himself. Earlier this winter, Jim's
house caught fire and burned, killing him. Jim's fiction career may not
have taken flight, but I hope everyone reading this can take a moment
and give a kind thought to a man who passed away too soon.
On a brighter
note, Stark House publisher Greg Shepard has been working as the
curator for the new Prologue Books, a
new e-book publisher looking to serve "as a living record of the crime,
science fiction, and fantasy genres," according to Ben LeRoy, publisher
of Tyrus Books and Prologue's creator. For all you e-book
junkies, check it out. It
should be a wonderful source for legitiamately acquired electronic
versions of those books that made most of us fans and readers in the
first place. No, they don't have the Hardy Boys or the Three
Investigators. Go to the library.
e-books, Stark House is still working at turning many of our titles
into e-books. So far we have Jada Davis's One
for Hell, E. Phillips Oppenheim's Secrets
& Sovereigns, and Charlie Stella's Johnny
Porno. More titles are forthcoming....

Next will be our
first James Hadley Chase volume COME
EASY--GO EASY / IN A VAIN SHADOW
with two of his best crime thrillers. One of the all time masters, his real name was René Raymond and he was as private and enigmatic as
his books were fast-paced and compulsively readable. Raymond/Chase
published over 90 books in his lifetime, becoming one of the world's
all-time bestselling thriller writers.
This was not
accomplished without controversy. In the book's introduction we talk
banned books, the accusations, the apologies, the swindles involving
the Hollywood Mafia and the effect on his previously unknown friend
(and one time publisher), Graham Greene. Raymond/Chase's story is
mostly unknown, buried in the recently discovered family papers in an
English basement and the memories of the people who actually knew this
reclusive author. So while it is difficult to know the man, it is not
difficult to know his work. Next month you can read two of
best, even if they make you stay up all night reading.
And after that
the man who
needs no introduction, Charlie Stella, with a follow-up to his first
novel, the modern crime classic Eddie's World. And
really, he needs no introduction, because he, um, writes his own.
Ten years after
the events in Eddie's
things have certainly changed for the characters involved. This time
Charlie brings us a look into the world just outside the mob and into
the FBI and the witness protection program. It's a crime novel as
ruthless and violent the way that only Charlie can write it. You don't
need to read Eddie's
World first, but you're going to want to. And the rest of
Charlie's books as well.
