Forgotten (and FREE) Stories: Race Williams in "Hell with the Lid Lifted" by Carroll John Daly


Davy and I are proud to present the eighth in our series of rare and unreprinted adventures of Race Williams, the Fasted Gun in the East. "Hell with the Lid Lifted," from the March 1939 Dime Detective, begins with Race impersonating a doctor - a doctor who's expected to saw the leg off a healthy young woman. And while he's still reeling from that, he's rushed into a wedding ceremony - with him as the groom.

Thanks to Kim Anderson, who scanned the story for us, this classic tale is now available for delivery direct to your email box. Just shoot me a message at delewis1@hotmail.com, and I'll fire it back to you (along with the earlier stories too). 

If you've received the other seven stories, don't sweat it. You're already on the list, and should find this in your email pronto. If you don't, give me a shout!

One of the very best Race stories, and certainly one of Daly's best titles. Well done, guys!

As a great fan of Daly's work, I would really LOVE to read this one!!
I sent an email request for a copy a few days ago, but haven't heard anything back. Have you stopped sending these stories out?
Just curious. Thanks for your time!

Any gun experts here? Does Race's stunt of pressing hard against the barrel of the .38 automatic really work?
