Although this is not my usual read - purchased it as a friends story was in this, i have found that it is quite a compelling read - all the stories keep you gripped and are full of excitement and fun. Especially On Her Majesty's Bloody Service by Iain Purdie my mate lol - seriously it is a very good read throughout and im sure you will enjoy it from start to finish.

A book with no airs and graces, just good old-fashioned heroes out to destroy evil wherever they find it. If you remember and enjoyed The Avengers, The Saint and the early James Bond and Our Man Flint you'll love this. If you don't remember them then reading this book will give you an insight into the escapism your parents (ok your father) enjoyed when the baddies were bad and the goodies were good and didn't care what people thought of them.
The individual stories are short enough to finish in a single sitting, and the mix of established and new authors makes each story sufficiently different to maintain interest.

I'm always on the look out for authors i haven't read, someone told me this book was on offer so i bought it to sample the authors' work. To read the book as one would a novel is not satisfying, one needs the build up to the action, too much action takes the edge of the pleasure. To read one of these short stories then read something else makes it a very enjoyable book. Authors i already read are like old friends and new (including new to me) authors are an appetiser for more of their work. Like the first reviewer i did enjoy the Iain Purdy mix of action & tongue in cheek humour, it will be interesting to see more of his work.

First off, it has to be said... $1.50 for over four hundred pages of entertainment? That's just insane value right there.

Action: Pulse Pounding Tales, Vol. 1 from editor Matt Hilton, best known as the author of the Joe Hunter series of action novels brings together 37 short stories of action and adventure.

These tales are all bound together with the unapologetic tradition of drugstore book rack pulp - and they deliver exactly what the reader expects. Bad guys with guns are hunted down and given their just deserts by even badder anti-heroes with even bigger guns.

That's not at all to say that you won't be surprised and transported by the stories and the characters - only that "entertainment" is the watchword here, and it is delivered in a 428 page bucket.

Some particular standouts are "Strangers on a Train", by Stephen Leather in which a band of "Hard Boys" from London meet their match when they pick the wrong subway car to rob. For pure, gritty revenge fantasy, "Gallance" by Col Bury is possibly the best example among several choices in "Action"; and Adrian Magson's "Jingle Bells" brings an unexpected and very welcome dose of heart to the mix.

Just as the "lone wolf with an agenda" (be they cops/agents or soldiers of fortune) begins to get a little thin, the second half of the book kicks in, and presents stories of Swords and Sorcery, like the excellent "Issa's Island Prison" by Graham Smith, and the rollicking pirate tale, "The Judgement of Jean Lafitte" by Evan Lewis.

Not the sort of book I'd normally read, but one of the authors pointed my in it's direction. I'm glad he did. Small portions, but jam packed with action. Well worth it.
