The Automatic Detective by A. Lee Martinez

by Chadwick Ginther - Friday, Nov 02, 2007 at 11:43am

A. Lee Martinez is at his best when he ignores the "rules". In combining a pulp science fiction setting with crime noir sensibility, he has crafted his strongest fiction since his blisteringly good debut Gil's All Fright Diner.

Gil's was such a strong debut that In the Company of Ogres and The Nameless Witch, both fine and entertaining stories in their own rights, suffered under the expectations, and desires of fans to see more of Duke and Earl,Gil's' werewolf & vampire leads.
