The New Prologue website

On Thursday March 1, 2012, F&W and Adams Media announce the premier of their new ebook website, Prologue, which will feature many of the vintage mystery and genre fiction authors of the past 100 years. Created by Ben LeRoy, the editor of Tyrus Books, it’s a great list of the known and the not-so-known.

They've got authors like Gil Brewer, Andrew Coburn, Robert Colby, Richard Deming, Fletcher Flora, William Gault, Orrie Hitt, Frank Kane, Henry Kane, Ed Lacy, Dan J. Marlowe, Wade Miller, Helen Nielsen, Vin Packer, Kin Platt, Peter Rabe, Charles Runyon, Louis Trimble, Jack Webb, Harry Whittington….and that’s just for starters.

There’s lots more to come: science fiction, romance, westerns, young adult, horror, and more mysteries.

Visit the Prologue website at, or check out online booksellers like or Barnes & Noble. We think you’ll be nicely surprised at the number of books being made available. As the site says, this is a “living record” of genre fiction. And this is just the beginning.

Man, what a lineup! I bought a few books already, and there'll be more in the days to come, I'm sure.

Whoa. Quite some list.

Wade Miller's Max Thursday.
Talmage Powell's Ed Rivers.
William Campbell Gault's Joe Puma.
Lots more.

Finding these in paperback is not easy and seeing them readily available as ebooks is an encouraging thing.
