Paperback Warrior Podcast - Episode 100

It's the 100th episode of the Paperback Warrior Podcast! Tom and Eric discuss their favorite moments from the show's past three years as well as the life and literary work of pulp and crime-fiction author Cleve Adams. Reviews include a Matthew Scudder installment by Lawrence Block and a 1957 vintage paperback called Sin Pit. Listen on any podcast app, or download directly HERE. Additionally, you can watch the video version of this episode on YouTube HERE.


  1. Cleve Adams sure could spin a good crime yarn. But I always found him putting too many characters in his stories, especially in The Private Eye. Maybe it was because he cut his teeth in the serial pulp mags. The Private Eye read like one of those.

  2. Congratulations on your 100th guys! I really enjoy your podcast and your blog and reviews!

  3. Congratulations on 100 episodes! It's been a great ride and still is.

    To add to your discussion of insurance agents as detectives, one of the best Old Time Radio shows was Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar about an insurance investigator. Check out the weekly serialized episodes with Bob Bailey, really some excellent crime fiction in radio play form. Lots of fun to listen to while doing your chores, travelling etc.
