New from Hard Case Crime is Shills Can’t Cash Chips, first published in 1961 by William Morrow. It’s book No. 22 in the Cool and Lam series.
From the world-famous creator of PERRY MASON, Erle Stanley Gardner—at his death the best-selling American writer of all time—comes another baffling case for the Cool & Lam detective agency. Return to the 1960s as a simple insurance investigation into a car accident puts Bertha Cool and Donald Lam on the trail of murder – and Donald hip-deep in danger when he poses as an ex-con to infiltrate a criminal gang. It’s Gardner’s twistiest caper ever, and a fitting conclusion to Hard Case Crime’s revival of this classic (and long unavailable) detective series.

Editor Marc Myers has ordered a proof copy of the new hardcover collection of comix and zines by the late Roman Scott: Oddities and Other Grotesques. With a little luck the 168-page volume will be available from Lulu.com in December.
The Digest Enthusiast No. 13 is about 99% complete and I hope to upload the files to Lulu.com early next week and get a print proof underway. I’m hoping the release date will be Dec. 18.
