Randolph "Dilda" Carter

A rant about books, horror, and the weird.  I sometimes take on my love/hate relationship with goodreads and Amazon.

One Night Stands and Lost Weekends - Lawrence Block

One caveat: these are not politically correct stories. There are many scenes of rape not necessarily frowned upon. I have to cringe at times to get through a story. As hard boiled as they come and certainly formulaic after a while. Block always seems to go one sentence too far. These are the early stories of a budding writer and even Block somewhat disowns them.


I found this and about five other mmpb and trade novels, collections, and anthologies (ones I would actually buy and read) for one buck each at Dollar General.
