Description
End of the Tiger and Other Stories, a classic collection of short fiction from crime writer John D. MacDonald, the beloved author of Cape Fear and the Travis McGee series, is now available as an eBook. As prolific a novelist as John D. MacDonald was in his time, his output as a short-story writer is simply astonishing. All told, just a fraction of the five hundred pieces he produced as a working writer were anthologized, and End of the Tiger and Other Stories is the first of just a few such collections. Although renowned primarily as a noir author, these fifteen handpicked gems showcase MacDonald's tremendous range. Written between 1947 and 1966, during the golden age of short fiction in America, and appearing in such national magazines as Cosmopolitan, The Saturday Evening Post, Collier's, and Ladies' Home Journal, these stories are a timeless testament to a writer at the top of his craft. This collection includes "Hangover," "The Big Blue," "The Trouble with Erica," "Long Shot," "Looie Follows Me," "Blurred View," "The Loveliest Girl in the World," "Triangle," "The Bear Trap," "A Romantic Courtesy," "The Fast Loose Money," "The Straw Witch," "End of the Tiger," "The Trap of Solid Gold," and "Afternoon of the Hero." Features a new Introduction by Dean Koontz Praise for John D. MacDonald " The great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller."--Stephen King "My favorite novelist of all time."--Dean Koontz "To diggers a thousand years from now, the works of John D. MacDonald would be a treasure on the order of the tomb of Tutankhamen."--Kurt Vonnegut "A master storyteller, a masterful suspense writer . . . John D. MacDonald is a shining example for all of us in the field. Talk about the best ."--Mary Higgins Clark
