The word may be getting out that Day Keene, author of those great ir vels of the 40s and 50s, also wrote a lot of stories for the pulps -- and that John Pelan and Ramble House are bringing all of them back for re-reading. Many of these stories were written during WWII and you can tell emotions are burning. Here are the stories in this fifth volume of the series: A Corpse Walks in Brooklyn-Detective Tales, October 1945 The Stars Say Die!-Detective Tales November 1941 Herr Yama from Yokohoma-Ace G-Man February 1943 Seven Keys to Murder-Dime Mystery, September 1944 I'll Be Seeing You-Dime Mystery, November 1946 Three Dead Mice-Flynn's, March 1944 A Corpse for Cinderella-Dime Mystery May 1945 Claws of the Hell Cat-Dime Mystery, January 1946
Day Keene is known for his hard-boiled novels but as Robert J. Randisi explains in his introduction to Volume 5, there's more to Keene than you know. His story is fascinating.
