5.0 out of 5 stars The return of gritty fiction 10 Feb 2013
By Eric Hebert - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Thuglit! Wow! A number of years ago I discovered the world of electronic magazines, e-zines, or sometimes, just 'zines. They are like the modern version of the pulps. What could be cheaper than pulp pages than electrons?

'Zines come and go, they are usually offered to read for free; if they pay the authors for their work they attract better quality stories but they struggle to create revenues through advertising and fold.

Thuglit (and another fantastic 'zine - Plots with Guns) has been around for years but even they had to fold a couple of years ago. Recently (I'm writing about this in February 2013) they've reemerged in a new format - pay-for-the-issue. In the 20's, 30's and 40's, when the pulps ruled, they offered cheap entertainment for an amount of money that anybody could afford -10 cents. Today, thanks to Apple and the iTunes Store, that number is 99 cents.

I think the folks at Thuglit may have cracked the code to a new pulp era. Part of what didn't work, for me, in the web page era, was that I, as a reader, I had to seek out the content and try figure out where I left off the last time I visited. It was a pain. Now I can buy and download any issue I want (no more troubles trying to get back issues - I can also see the return of the serial with this) take it with me on my tablet, or e-reader, bookmark it, put it down, come back to it, just like a real magazine.

This is exciting stuff.

Oh, BTW, Thuglit is crime fiction; down-and-dirty, mean, scary, tough and they are not afraid to use swear words. Just so you know what you're getting into.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price of admission and then some 20 Oct 2012
By Brett Williams - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
99 cents for gritty fiction this good? Sheesh, buy it already. The first story, "Lucy in the Pit," is worth the price of admission alone. As another reviewer stated, this collection offers true variety -- all good stuff. Seriously. Buy it already. Capiche?

Not your usual noir. True variety. It contains an eclectic mix of talent. Not a bad one in the bunch.

5.0 out of 5 stars High octane 26 May 2013
By Mets6986 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been reading the Thuglit issues in an odd hopscotch order, from Four to Five and now back to One. Yet the quality has remained consistently high, and you can see how #1 set the tone -- right out of the gate, with Jordan Harper's entry. I greatly respected but didn't quite love his "American Death Songs," but "Lucy in the Pit" really connected emotionally for me. The editors do a really good job of assembling multi-faceted collections, with different voices and sensibilities. The fun thing in #1 that I found different was variety in periods.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Noir Collection 14 April 2013
By Bordeaux Dogue - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great reading, good authors! Gritty as hell.

The story by Mike Wilkerson is one of the best shorts i have read in quite some time.

The first story, Lucy, is astonishing, depicting kindness in a " world" there is none. And it is about a dog. 'nough said!

What a great book!
