""Pulp fiction never dies!"" proclaims Maxim Jakubowski and he might be right: the editor of The Mammoth Book of Pulp Fiction returns with The Mammoth Book of Pulp Action, a celebration of the hardboiled form. From Raoul Whitfield's 1929 ""Sinners' Paradise"" to Michael Guinzburg's 2000 ""The Gangsta Wore Red,"" this volume has all the big guns, dirty cops, shady characters and dishonest damsels a pulp enthusiast could hope for.
