DYDEETOWN WORLD. Paul Wilson, rancis.


[New York]: Baen Books, [1989]. Small octavo, First edition. Baen Books 69828-1. Paperback original. Part of the author's LaNague Federations series. Future thriller set in a dark New York. "A quiet little SF tribute to Raymond Chandler whose work has given me such pleasure over the years. As part of my usual process, I took all the tropes of noir P-I fiction and gave them my own twist. I’ve got a down-and-out private investigator with an addiction, I’ve got the tired, seamy city, I’ve got the seedy club owner who’s the go-to guy for anything illegal, I’ve got a full crew of various underworld sociopaths. Only one person in the whole cast has any decency, and that’s a clone of Jean Harlow who’s a Dydeetown whore with (you guessed it) a heart of gold. She’s the “Dydeetown Girl” of the novella’s title."- F. Paul Wilson (from the author's online blog). Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine unread copy in wrappers. (15785). Item #15785
