Manhunt, April 1953
A Novelette
by David Goodis
A glittering stone and a beautiful blonde—and Hagan wanted them both; wanted them badly enough to kill for them.
SUSPENSE: For pure adventure, strongly seasoned with homicide, David Goodis’ The Blue Sweetheart mixes sapphires, blondes, and revenge with a Ceylon background.
In the same issue, there’s a story by David Goodis, author of the novels Dark Passage, Nightfall, and Behold This Woman. His new story is a shocker that will keep you guessing all the way. (From Manhunt, March 1953)

DAVID GOODIS hit the big time with his novel, “Dark Passage” which was made into a movie starring the Bogart-Bacall team. Goodis wrote his first novel when he was twenty-one and prophetically called it, “The Ignited” . . . later threw it into the furnace. Since then he’s written hundreds of stories, wrote for radio in New York and is now working in Hollywood. Outstanding novels include Dark Passage, Nightfall and Behold This Woman. Philosophy? . . . Goodis: “. . . work hard . . . but don’t ever worry about a thing.”

This Edition includes the illustrations from both stories and mini-bio, plus a gallery of 8 Pulp Magazine covers that feature David Goodis stories.

About the Author

David Goodis is one of the most enigmatic and acclaimed authors to come out of the world of pulp crime fiction. Born in Philadelphia, he brought a jazzy, expressionist style and an almost hallucinatory intensity to his spare, passionate, uncompromising novels of mean streets and doomed people. Goodis first rose to national attention with the book Dark Passage, which was adapted as the classic film noir starring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall in 1947.
