Brown, Fredric

Brown, Fredric - Murder Draws a Crowd  

It took nearly four years to assemble the first two volumes of THE FREDRIC BROWN MYSTERY LIBRARY, the definitive collection of Fredric Brown sans his science fiction works. Assembled in chronological order of publication, this set will contain all the short fiction (of all genres: mystery, horror, noir, western, detection, etc.) and all of Brown’s novels (again, excepting his sf works). You’ll be able to enjoy Fredric Brown at his longer lengths from The Fabulous Clipjoint and Night of the Jabberwock to The Lenient Beast and Mrs. Murphy’s Underpants. 

Assisting with this effort have been Brown bibliographer Phil Stephensen-Payne and Brown biographer Jack Seabrook. This massive undertaking could not have been accomplished without their help

Brown, Fredric  - The Wench is Dead

“I’m called Howie, or The Professor. I’m on Skid Row in Los Angeles because I want to know what it’s like to be a bum, from the inside. But I didn’t know I’d fall for a part-time hustler named Billie the Kid. I didn’t know I’d get mixed up in two killings, and that the cops would pin them on me...”

The Wench Is Dead is one of Fredric Brown’s most wild novels, flawlessly written and rarely reprinted. This edition features a new introduction by Bill Crider, a color cover by legendary cover artist Ron Lesser, and is signed by both Bill Crider and Ron Lesser. There are also twelve bonus stories.

Brown, Fredric - Knock 3-1-2

“Fredric Brown tops himself again,” says the Los Angeles Mirror-News of this taut, dramatic novel of one night when a desperate rapist-killer stalked a town, ten hours of panic and terror that turned the night into a nightmare. For as the net tightened around the killer more and more, people became entangled in a chain of events that ended in an explosion of maniacal savagery.

Knock 3-1-2 is widely considered to be one of Fredric Brown’s best suspense novels, and is rarely reprinted. This edition features a new introduction by Jack Seabrook, a color cover by legendary cover artist Ron Lesser, and is signed by both Seabrook and Lesser.

Brown, Fredric  - The Lenient Beast

“The Mark of the Beast is upon me, and the Beast is Mercy. Until the Mark is taken away, I must perform my function as the giver of God’s greatest gift of Mercy — death and surcease to those for whom life seems to be agony.” 

 Six people already had been relieved of the burden of life; six times John Medley had felt peace. On the police blotter six brutal murders were stamped unsolved.
The Lenient Beast presents Fredric Brown at his best and most daring, with a certified crime classic. This edition features a new introduction by John Pelan, a color cover by legendary cover artist Ron Lesser, and is signed by both John Pelan and Ron Lesser. There are also three bonus stories.
