Barry N. Malzberg’s entire LONE WOLF series of crime novels (as by Mike Barry) are now available as e-books through Prologue Books

As incredible as it is to believe, Barry N. Malzberg wrote twelve novels in 1973. Ten of the twelve novels make up the first 10 books of the Lone Wolf crime novel series. These books have been out of print for a long time, but they have recently been brought out in e-book form by Prologue Books. There are a total of 14 books in the Lone Wolf series. I managed to find a couple of them in paperback in a second-hand bookstore some time back, but now the whole series is available. For fans of Barry Malzberg; for fans of crime novels; and for collector-completists, this is a cool deal!

The novels are available in a variety of e-book formats including Amazon Kindle, Nook, Apple, Sony and Kobo. I’ve picked up the first three from Amazon, with the idea of eventually obtaining all of them. I started reading book #1 at lunch yesterday.

If you are a fan of crime novels, or a fan of Barry’s work, be sure to check them out.


  1. Since I’m still not an e-book lover (despite owning an almost never used Nook I got half price), reading this just got me on the hunt for the originals via Abebooks. I have NEVER, in my decades of keeping eye out for these, seen a SINGLE ONE, EVER, ANYWHERE, not even at collectors shows. Was able via abebooks to get entire series for less than $6 a copy, in 10 minutes. I miss actual used book store, but damn is abebooks awesome.
