From Seattle's own The Stranger: Domenic Stansberry's Edgar-nominated novel THE CONFESSION and the rest of the lineup from Hard Case Crime ("may be the best new American publisher to appear in the last decade") has Neal Pollack anticipating the triumphant return of pulp fiction. Him and me both.

If only there were some way to give the same treatment to the cable news networks, considering that all of them interrupted their regular coverage of the Michael Jackson trial last night to show live footage of the SUV bearing Martha Stewart stealing across the West Virginia countryside under cover of darkness. But I suppose that's too much to ask.
