Sam Slick Lizard Detective from the Author: Tiki King. One fine morning in 1986, Sam Slick slithered out from the imagination of Tiki King. (He wasn't called Tiki King back then, but that is a different story) He lit a smoke, poured a drink, and then set out on the adventures you will find in this book.(after finishing his drink, of course) Sam was created as an insert to some letters to a friend, was supposed to run four or five strips, and then depart as mysteriously as he appeared. Sam however, had other ideas. He just kept going, and even came out with his own line of Tee-shirts, stickers and buttons. Among those who knew him, Sam was a hit. Then with out a word, Sam disappeared. He surfaced briefly in 1989, but then dropped from sight, possibly never to return. Calls went unanswered, mail came back marked return to sender but now, almost 20 years after it all began, there is a light on in the office. Sam is back, alive and well, having new adventures, and probably watching you right now...In this first edition is the story that started it all "Bunny business" and the second story "Chicken Town" Available for the first time complete and in book form, beautifully type-set in comic sans! Sure to be a collectors item! (Provided you collect lizard detective comic novels)In a recent interview, author Tiki King said: "Can you really put a price on genius? I don't know, but the book is ten bucks. A bargain for people who usually spend twice as much..." Oh, yeah, and even though it is a comic book, it ain't for the kids! It's got violence, cigarettes, excessive drinking, innuendo, ukuleles, angry flies with machine guns...

The Black Lizard Big Book Of Black Mask Stories from the Author: Otto Penzler. An unstoppable anthology of crime stories culled from Black Mask magazine the legendary publication that turned a pulp phenomenon into literary mainstream. Black Mask was the apotheosis of noir. It was the magazine where the first hardboiled detective story, which was written by Carroll John Daly appeared. It was the slum in which such American literary titans like Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler got their start, and it was the home of stories with titles like “Murder Is Bad Luck,” “Ten Carets of Lead,” and “Drop Dead Twice.” Collected here is best of the best, the hardest of the hardboiled, and the darkest of the dark of America’s finest crime fiction. This masterpiece collection represents a high watermark of America’s underbelly. Crime writing gets no better than this. Featuring • Deadly Diamonds • Dancing Rats • A Prize Fighter Fighting for His Life • A Parrot that Wouldn’t Talk Including • Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon as it was originally published • Lester Dent's Luck in print for the first time From the Trade Paperback edition.

My Sister S Keeper from the Author: Bill Benners. Ever since his younger sister Martha woke him early one Sunday morning holding a Rubic's Cube in the palm of her hand with all the colored squares in perfect alignment, in some backward way, twelve-year-old Richard Baimbridge became his sister's motivation. If she saw me give up on anything, regardless of how insignificant-forgetting a phone number, finding the right nut to fit a bolt, or fixing a broken toy-she'd go after it with fanaticism and would not give up until she'd figured it out.Being better than Richard challenged Martha and when she succeeded, it fulfilled her. Richard was proud of her, but not like their Dad. Their Dad loved it. It seemed the more Martha outdid Richard, the more he liked it. By the time Richard left home at eighteen, there was a gap between his father and him that an ocean couldn't fill.But when Martha is brutally attacked while investigating the rape and attempted murder of a thirteen-year old for the News & Observer, Richard Baimbridge moves back to his hometown of Wilmington, North Carolina, to assist his family in caring for his sister and comes face to face with his tormented past and a dark family secret.Despised by his father and haunted by his past, he fights to stay above the flood of childhood trauma while longing to return to the life he'd built in New York City. But when the police exhaust all leads in his sister's case, wheelchair-bound Martha refuses to let her case die and, with Richard as her legs, insists on continuing the investigation herself, drawing Richard into the darker side of Wilmington - a place of greed, violence, and murder - where he, himself, becomes a primary murder suspect.
