Charlie Martz and Other Stories
256 pages; William Morrow

These 15 tales, most published for the first time, are set against backdrops Leonard mastered as a crime novelist: the Old West, noir Detroit, Mod Hollywood. Gunslingers and suits dreamed up well before Get Shorty and Out of Sight are sketches of the heroes and villains for whom Leonard would become known.
