Synopsis: For the first time ever!-two hardboiled classics!-joined at last! First published in 1933, Fast One is the roughest novel of the Black Mask school-praised by Chandler!-hailed by Captain Shaw! A searing tale of underworld Los Angeles, where the only crime is loving too much! To live outside the law you must be honest! Seven Slayers contains seven of Cain's very best short stories written for Black Mask! Each one a pip and a prize! Together in an attractive, readable edition-and for a very low cost-these two books comprise the Omnibus! George Carrol Sims wrote for Black Mask under the nom de guerre Paul Cain. As Peter Ruric, he wrote for Motion Pictures-including 1934's The Black Cat, a film distinguished by every element except its screenplay, and 1944's Mademoiselle Fifi, one of the lesser known films produced by RKO's Val Lewton. Sims dated the actress Gertrude Michael, said to inspire the character of Granquist in Fast One. Sims died of cancer in a Hollywood hotel.
