The Night My Friend PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Night My Friend free pdf An incredible assortment of stories from one of history's masters of short fiction. On the morning of the merger, fog shrouds the offices of Jupiter Steel. On the twenty-first floor, the board of directors gathers to follow the commands of Billy Calm, an unequaled titan of finance. But a few minutes before the meeting, Calm jumps out a window. The chief of security rushes to the street, but where there should be a body, he sees only slush- Billy Calm has vanished into the fog. 'The Long Way Down' is a classic Edward D. Hoch story -- elegantly baffling, with prose that will please even the most hard-boiled fans. But this collection contains much more than puzzles. Here are the odds and ends of Hoch's early work, covering espionage, boxing, and every shade of noir -- as beautiful as the fog, and as chilling as the first step off the ledge.

About Edward D. Hoch

Edward D. Hoch (1930-2008) was a master of the mystery short story. Born in Rochester, New York, he sold his first story, 'The Village of the Dead,' to Famous Detective Stories, then one of the last remaining old-time pulps. The tale introduced Simon Ark, a two-thousand-year-old Coptic priest who became one of Hoch's many series characters. Others included small-town doctor Sam Hawthorne, police detective Captain Leopold, and Revolutionary War secret agent Alexander Swift. By rotating through his stable of characters, most of whom aged with time, Hoch was able to achieve extreme productivity, selling stories to Argosy, Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, and Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, which published a story of his in every issue from 1973 until his death. In all, Hoch wrote nearly one thousand short tales, making him one of the most prolific story writers of the twentieth century. He was awarded the 1968 Edgar Award for 'The Oblong Room,' and in 2001 became the first short story writer to be named a Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America.
