The Collected Adventures of the Drifter Detective
Texas. The early 1950s. Jack Laramie, independent private investigator, travels the vast republic towing his home, a horse trailer, behind a sweet DeSoto, finding adventure and intrigue in every town he encounters.
Five novellas and novelettes featuring David Cranmer’s The Drifter Detective are collected together in one volume for the first time. Uncle B. Publications, LLC, has bound these exciting tales in the first of two volumes for your permanent library. This is pulp fiction at its finest–sharp prose and sharper action.
The greatest multi-genre pulp fiction digest of the twenty-first century. Pulp Modern has published over 200 of the best underground and independent pulp fiction writers working today. Featuring crime, noir, science fiction, horror, fantasy, adventure, western, and war stories, each issue of Pulp Modern has something to offer readers of discerning taste.
Over the last ten years, Pulp Modern has set the standard for independent fiction digests, inspiring an entire new generation of indie journals. Celebrate Pulp Modern’s 10th birthday with eight killer pieces of pulp fiction and an outstanding article about Walter Moseley written by Anthony Perconti.
The celebration begins with an ace piece of crime fiction by Karen Harrington. We get samples of the greatness of indie writers such as Anthony Neil Smith, Andrew Miller, and Stephen J. Golds. Nathan Pettigrew provides an odd slice of life between a father and son whose concerns about breaking the law don’t get in the way of their more domestic and material endeavors. We get a nice slice of fantasy and horror from C.J. Dotson and Sarah Cannavo. Chicago’s unofficial poet laureate, Tia Ja’nae, shows us just why she’s the most important crime fiction writer today. Finally, Edward A. Grainger (aka David Cranmer) brings his classic western marshal, Cash Laramie, back for another adventure. Fitting, considering Cash Laramie made an appearance in the very first issue of Pulp Modern, way back in 2011, when the world still made just a little bit of sense…
Richard Krauss returns as art director. Ran Scott provides illustrations. And editor Alec Cizak sits back and lets all these talented writers and artists do their thing.
