We are delighted to present our second collection of Talmage Powell mystery short stories!

Powell (1920-2000) was one of the all-time great mystery writers of the pulp magazines (and later the digest mystery magazines). He claimed to have written more than 500 short stories, and we have no reason to doubt him -- we are working on a bibliography of his work and have documented 373 magazine stories so far...and who knows how many are out there under pseudonyms or buried in obscure magazines? He wrote his first novel, The Smasher, in 1959. He went on to pen 11 more novels under his own name, 4 as "Ellery Queen," and 2 novelizations of the hit TV series Mission: Impossible. Clearly, though, short stories were his first love.

Included here are 20 more of his best crime tales, including:

  • THE VITAL ELEMENT
  • PSYCHO-SYMPTOMS
  • STRANGER'S GIFT
  • THE WAY OUT
  • IN THE HOUSE OF RATS
  • TO SPARE A LIFE
  • THE INSPIRATION
  • EASY MARK
  • GATOR BAIT
  • THE COMMUNE
  • THE DELICATE VICTIM
  • TRIAL RUN
  • THE TIP-OFF
  • THE ULTIMATE PREY
  • NEW NEIGHBOR
  • TILL DEATH DO NOT US PART
  • HOPE CHEST
  • THE HOLDUP
  • A WAY WITH A WILL
  • THE BEACON

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
