First Deke Rivers story bought by Hardboiled

Deke Rivers will make his debut on the pages of Hardboiled, a cool little pulp published by Gary Lovisi of Gryphon Books out of Brooklyn. Hardboiled harkens back to the days of the Black Mask, Dime Detective, and the classic pulps of the 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s.

The story is called "Number One with a Bullet," and pits Deke against a sniper terrorizing Nashville by singling out and killing members of country music's old guard, the stars of country's golden age.

I was hoping Deke would make his first public appearance in Hardboiled because it is old school and real. No holds barred, no pulled punches. It's the ultimate fighting competition of contemporary fiction.

I'll let you know which issue and how you can order a copy.
