Perfect Murders Paperback / softback
Part of the Bison Frontiers of Imagination series
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.
