One of us would die. For the other, there would be Grace. I didn't know what she meant to him but, to me, she was worth all the risk. Sin Pit was one of those cult pulp paperbacks that were notoriously difficult to find. But Automat.Press has come along and valiantly made it available again in e-book format, so I was stoked to get a crack at reading it! I was disappointed though to find that the book is more of a hard-boiled mystery than the sleaze noir that I hoped for. As a crime mystery, it's [...]

This one rates a perfect 10 on the pulp-o-meter. It meets every criteria on the list. The list? Here:1. A crime (can precede the timeline of the narrative).2. Tough wise-cracking dialogue. 3. An unsympathetic protagonist (with whom you none-the-less identify).4. A femme fatale.5. Sexual tension.6. A tough brutal thug (the nemesis of the main character). 7. Ironic plot twists.8. A double-cross.9. A sense though out that all the characters are doomed.10. A lurid cover featuring a scantily-clad wom [...]

1950's PulpSin Pit, originally titled Blood Lust (by the author not the publisher) is a 1954 pulp paperback that was considered a rare find. It has now been re-issued as an e-book. Meskil only published one novel in his lifetime and this was it. Meskil has a smooth, easy writing style that makes this short novel a fairly quick read. There are a lot of classic pulp motifs present here from the good cop twisted by an irresistible woman, the dreadful power of desire, the poor country girl turning t [...]

This highly collectible paperback from 1954 (a decent copy runs $300+) was given a primitive reissue by Gryphon Books in 2004. In the reissue, Gary Lovisi hails Sin Pit as a forgotten noir masterpiece, and he's more or less right. My only gripe is that the novel is so lean that sometimes it reads more like an outline for the book than the actual thing. But one could just as easily count this is a virture: Hardly a word is wasted in Sin Pit, and it hits all the right noir notes along the way--eve [...]

This was pretty good. I had some issues with the writing, and it didn't really get under my skin the way the best hard-boiled novels do, but if you're in the mood for a classic '50s pulp, this definitely fits the bill. I kept thinking while I was reading it that it would have made a fantastic early '50s film noir starring either Charles McGraw or Robert Mitchum.
