Desperate Women by Michael Hemmingson (Olympia Press/New Traveller’s Companion #160, 2010)

Posted in crime noir, noir fiction, pulp fiction with tags , , , on May 22, 2010 by vintagesleazepaperbacks

Seven sinful, shameful stories of haunting, sensual and romantic desperation–one woman will do anything to keep winning in Las Vegas; another woman will do anything to keep her married lover while another woman desperately uses her body to blackmail men, until her own lustful greed backfires on her. Two young women turn to much older men for education and salvation while a desperate and lonely housewife falls in love with a man she only knows through email.

A story from the collection, “I Paid the Whore,” is online this week at Beat to a Pulp.
