Perfect Murders (Bison Frontiers of Imagination): Horace L. Gold,E. J. Gold: 9780803233591: Amazon.c

Book Description:

May 1, 2010 Bison Frontiers of Imagination
Perhaps best known for editing the popular post–World War II magazines Galaxy Science Fiction and Beyond Fantasy Fiction, Horace L. Gold also wrote comic-book scripts for DC Comics and penned numerous pulp adventures and science-fiction stories. Perfect Murders, a collection of seven of these stories, captures the timeless emotions evoked by pulp and science fiction for the twenty-first century. Though the main character is always called Gilroy, his identity shifts from story to story: the horserace handicapper fighting for his dame, the private eye sussing out the murderer, or the hard-boiled journalist exposing the mad scientist. And though Gold uses the traditional genres—time travel, Armageddon, science gone awry, murder, extraterrestrials—Perfect Murders is nothing less than a horrific, page-turning, fictional thrill ride engineered by one of the leading science-fiction writers and editors of the mid-twentieth century. The Bison Books edition is introduced by Gold’s son, E. J. Gold, offering a new perspective on these classic stories.
