Also known as “Stand Up And Slug” this humourous boxing story is told in the first person. Narrator Jim Philips does a great job characterizing the wharfies, boxers, and floozies that populate its seedy Honolulu docklands.

“I do not believe in too much thinking; it gives a fighter the headache.”

There’s a complete ETEXT, but even better I’ve made a |PDF| from a scan of Fight Stories, September 1930.

Robert E. Howard’s Breckinridge Elkins stories are humorous tall tales about a mighty naive but mighty muscled country boy. This one, the very first, starts off a little like Winnie The Pooh, but fear not, all Howard’s usual themes are in there. There’s a bit of a difference though, even though you’ve got a barbaric he-man battling civilized folk the story differs from a CONAN tale in that it’s set in the then contemporary world (1934) and also because it’s told in first person by an unreliable narrator.

The audiobook’s narrator, RK Wilcox, on the other hand, is a very reliable narrator, as you’ll hear in this solid reading of Mountain Man.

Crimewav podcastI first heard about Christa Faust on the Behind The Black Mask: Mystery Writers Revealed podcast. She was talking with the hosts about her Hard Case Crime novel Money Shot. I bought the paperbook of Money Shot based on that interview. It was a most excellent read – not deep, not particularity original – except that it sure felt that way – Faust knows how to write a truly compelling narrative. Money Shot has now been nominated for an Edgar award! Crimewav, the Crime fiction short story podcast, has one of her shorter works…

Every fighter needs a good cut man in his corner. Sadly, this one isn’t a man, nor is she good – she’s down right murderous.
