Hard Case Crime - Ardai sees no eFuture for the imprint

Charles Ardai, editor of the Hard Case Crime imprint recently told The Rap Sheet - "“As for Hard Case Crime, specifically, its fate is not particularly tied to this situation; I own Hard Case Crime, and if Dorchester is no longer in the business of printing and distributing our sort of books, we can hook up with another publisher or distributor who is. I am having conversations with several, and I imagine things will become clearer in terms of what options we have over the coming weeks and months. In the meantime, the two books of ours that are on our Web site but haven’t yet been published will no doubt be delayed, and when they do come out it’s likely to be in collaboration with a company other than Dorchester, but I do expect they will come out, and that other Hard Case Crime books will follow."

Ardai sticks to his assertion that Hard Case Crime will continue for some time to come, though in a much scaled down form - the company go from publishing 13 books in 2009  to four in 2010
