Hard Case Crime


Hard Case Crime

Hard Case Crime is an American publisher of paperback hardboiled crime novels founded in 2004 by Charles Ardai, also known as the founder of the Internet service Juno Online Services, and Max Phillips. The series recreates, in editorial form and content, the spirit of the pulps of the 1940s and '50s. The covers feature original art done in pulp style by artists such as Robert McGinnis and Glen Orbik.

The collection includes both hard-to-find books from the pulp era (typically labeled "Complete and unabridged" on the cover), and new novels written specially for the collection (typically labeled "First publication anywhere"). The most widely reviewed entry in the series to date is a novel by Stephen King, "The Colorado Kid".

Four novels published by Hard Case have been nominated for the Edgar Award: In 2005, "Little Girl Lost", by Richard Aleas (a pseudonym for Hard Case Crime co-founder Charles Ardai that is both an anagram of Ardai's name and a play on "alias"), was nominated as Best First Novel by an American Author and Domenic Stansberry's "The Confession" won the award for Best Paperback Original; in 2006, Allan Guthrie's "Kiss Her Goodbye" was nominated for Best Paperback Original; and in 2008, Russell Hill's "Robbie's Wife" was nominated for Best Paperback Original.

Max Phillips' "Fade to Blonde" won the 2005 Shamus Award for Best Paperback Novel of the Year. Charles Ardai received the Edgar Award in 2007 for his short story "The Home Front."
