Forgotten Stories: Race Williams returns in "The Super-Devil" (and it's FREE)
Race Williams, as you may know, is a gunslinger in a fedora, and just maybe the most dangerous man in New York. But in "The Super-Devil," a long novelette from the August, 1926 issue of Black Mask, he meets a man who just might be his match. Not only is The Super-Devil fast, accurate and utterly fearless, but he has the advantage of being scruple-free. He'd happily shoot a man - or woman - in the back and be even happier if his victim happened to be asleep at the time.
In this one, Race is forced to break his number one rule - that Race Williams never bluffs. When his gats are taken from him, Race faces down a bloodthirsty gunman with nothing but pointing fingers in his pockets, and scares the guy so bad he crashes through a nightclub window to escape.
If you requested scans of "Alias Buttercup," the Race Williams adventure I featured three weeks ago, I'll be sending you this one too. But for the rest of you folks, if' you'd like to read "The Super-Devil," shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll fire it back at you.
More Race stories coming soon!
Forgotten Books (and sometimes Stories) are rounded up each week at pattinase.
