About this title


Hugh B. Cave was one of the most popular and prolific writers during the Golden Age of the Pulp Magazines between the late 1920's and the early 1940's. His name on the cover of Dime Detective, Detective Fiction Weekly, Weird Tales, Short Stories, Clues, Argosy, Horror Story, Black Mask, Adventure, Astounding, and countless other all-fiction magazines guaranteed a story with vivid characters and crackling pace. In his new introduction, Cave writes, "What I had, in many of my tales for Detective Fiction Weekly, were folks like you and you and you, who never wore a policeman's uniform or were licensed to be crime fighters. These characters were just everyday people who became involved in crime-fighting more or less by "accident." And when I began writing that kind of story, with a hero who was not a professional crime-fighter but just an ordinary Joe like most of us, the editor of Detective Fiction Weekly liked them and so did the readers. There are several such tales in this collection, along with the usual kind of detective story. I think they are among the best of the pulp stories I wrote." Published in honor of Hugh B. Cave's 92nd birthday, Come Into My Parlor takes the reader back to the great age of the pulp detective story, and to the world of the late 1930's.
