What's this? Stanley Hastings playing the lead in George Bernard Shaw's Arms and the Man on two days notice? What could possibly go wrong? Well, a backstage murder during dress rehearsal, for starters.

Stanley Hastings is one of my favorite series! However, I did find swearing by the narrator a little jarring - tying in another thread in this forum. He's kind of a male Stephanie Plum (who swears a lot). I hope they become available as cheaply to Canadians as ePubs at some point: I wouldn't mind rereading them.

Amazon also has #2,3,4,5,16,and 17 at $9.99 - and #1,6,7,14,15 are missing. I seem to recall he changed publishers at least once.

(I seem to recall the swearing more severe early in the series; or maybe I just became accustomed to Stanley ... )

Canadians have access to the Amazon books. I don't think we can buy any B&N eBooks. But I'm looking for ePub.

I don't remember about the swearing but I only read Client and Favor quite a few years ago. What I particularly liked about them was the humor. Yes - I noticed at least 2 different publishers: E-Reads and Pegasus.

#1 and #2 are available at Sony in EPUB and Books On Board (not in EPUB but for anyone else who is interested), but again, I don't know if they are available to Canadians or not, but you might check those out. Booksamillion has Favor in EPUB. Kobo has Favor also. Unfortunately none of them have the $2.99 books.

In case I was unclear, I guess I should word it "Stanley Hastings is kind of like a male Stephanie Plum, except that he swears a lot." Stephanie may swear, but only a bit; I don't really remember.

For Parnell Hall fans, now available at Amazon only for $2.99, the first book in Steve Winslow series:

The Baxter Trust

Quote:
Product Description
Sexy young Sheila Benton loses a multi-million dollar trust if she's involved in any scandal, so it probably would have been wiser not to do drugs, run around with a married man, and find a dead blackmailer on her kitchen floor. Defending her from a murder charge is a tough first case for attorney Steve Winslow, particularly since her trustee won't pay him, and he can't afford to quit his day job, driving a cab.
http://www.amazon.com/Baxter-Trust-W...575649&sr=1-24

The second book in the series, The Anonymous Client, is showing as not available to US customers, so may be available for others.

BTW, I see I made an error in my last post: It should have read the books at Fictionwise are NOT Geo restricted. There is another 50% off coupon available posted by alism, 031811, good until at least 3/20/2011.

More of Stanley Hastings series available for $2.99 at Amazon and B&N:

#1. Detective

Quote:
Synopsis
Stanley Hastings, the world's most unlikely private eye, a struggling actor/writer trying to support his wife and kid in New York City, who chases ambulances for a negligence lawyer and carries a camera instead of a gun and photographs accident victims and the cracks in the sidewalk that tripped them, tackles his first real case, tracking down the murderers of a client he could not save because he wasn't a real detective.

#6. Juror

Quote:
Synopsis
Shanghaied into jury duty and placed on a hopelessly boring civil case, Stanley Hastings swings into action when a juror is murdered, and engineers a most unusual courtroom climax. An amusing inside look at the jury selection system and a must for any prospective juror.

http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-Hastin...179458&sr=1-10

#7. Shot

Quote:
Synopsis
Stanley Hastings tries to prove his client didn't kill her lover, and gets shot for his trouble. He also gets fired, summoned before the grand jury, and embroiled in such a legal mess that his boss, negligence lawyer Richard Rosenberg, will have to cut a deal to save him.

Steve Winslow series (Amazon only):

#2. The Anonymous Client

Quote:
Product Description
The Anonymous Client – What young attorney wouldn’t be delighted to get a $10,000 cash retainer in the mail? Steve Winslow might have been if he knew who sent it. As it is, it gets him arrested for murder, grilled by the cops, and hauled before the grand jury. And he still doesn’t know who his client is.
http://www.amazon.com/Client-Steve-W...t_at_ep_dpt_10

#3. The Underground Man

Quote:
Product Description
When a homeless man’s greedy relatives get him committed, Steve has to prove a multimillionaire who sold his mansion and went to live in the subway is sane. Then he has to prove who killed him.

Have you seen this Harnell Pall video on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZoJ5OKmEJY? Hillarious!

I bet his novels have a wnderful sense of humor. I'd like to read one of his books, but I am not buying any more ebooks until my TBR list becomes more manageable.

I just watched the video - very funny! Looks like he has a bunch of other videos, too.

Yes, his books are very funny - except the first one. From that one you would never know the rest would turn out to be so funny.

Yeah, that's what I keep telling myself, too.

The next (and last) 2 books in the Steve Winslow series are now available at Amazon. The first 3 are also now available at B&N, so I would imagine the last 2 will also be. All $2.99 each.

#4. The Naked Typist

Product Description
When Steve Winslow helps a young secretary bring a wrongful termination suit against her former employer, it’s not a particularly interesting case, except for the fact she was hired to type in the nude. That and the fact she doesn’t stick around to pick up her settlement check, and turns out to have given a phony name.


http://www.amazon.com/Naked-Typist-W...4361408&sr=1-4

#5. The Wrong Gun

Product Description
When a revolver once owned by wild west outlaw Pistol Pete Robbins is stolen and a replica left in its place, wealthy gun collector Russ Timberlaine is afraid someone will commit a murder with it in order to frame him for the crime. Steve Winslow substitutes a third gun in its place. When the murder takes place, guess which gun did it!
