DEBATABLE 129 – Lost & Found: Hard Case Crime with Charles Ardai

What was lost, now is found. This is a very special episode recorded in July 2016 with hard boiled writer and Hard Case Crime imprint founder, CHARLES ARDAI. We talk Ardai’s novelization of Shane Black’s “The Nice Guys,” crime fiction fandom, and the writing, publishing and artifact nature of pulp fiction paperbacks. We touch on Stephen King’s work with Hard Case Crime, as well as Raymond Chandler, James M. Cain, Lawrence Block and other heavy hitters of the genre. We also talk about Ardai’s involvement with the cult crime drama-fantasy TV series “Haven.” At the end, Ardai gives his recommendations for newbies to Hard Case Crime’s vast catalog.
