Minnesota Not-So-Nice

Minnesota Not-So-Nice: Retro Pulp Tales from the North Star State

Minnesota pulp

It may be a surprise to those who think of “Minnesota Nice” today, but in the 1920s and ‘30s, the Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis were rife with crime and corruption. Criminals from John Dillinger to Ma Barker to Babyface Nelson spent time in the area whenever the heat got too bad in other parts of the country. This collection includes new and retro pulp tales set in the North Star state from the tattered pages of Thrilling Wonder Stories, Popular Detective and more!
