Jeff Vorzimmer - The Best of Manhunt 2

Sold out.



“From its first issue, Manhunt declared itself different. For one thing, all the stories wereclaimed to be new and remained that way until near the end. And many of the earlycontributors were familiar names from hardcover publishing, including William Irish(a.k.a. Cornell Woolrich), Kenneth Millar (as himself and as John Ross Macdonald),Eleazar Lipsky, Bruno Fischer, Craig Rice, Harold Q. Masur, Leslie Charteris, WilliamLindsay Gresham, Henry Kane, and David Goodis…“The essence of Manhunt was not the private eye story, though it published plenty ofthem. What set it apart was what is now called noir fiction, a term often thrown aroundvery loosely but in its purest form concerning a flawed but not necessarily unsympatheticprotagonist who will not have a happy outcome.” —from the Introduction by Jon L. Breen
