Lee Marvin: one of the most coolly charismatic and extraordinary screen tough guys ever. Armed with a magnetic personality, a wild temper and major acting talent, he went from playing bit parts to starring in classics such as Cat Ballou, The Dirty Dozen and Point Blank, and winning an Academy Award.

Crime Factory celebrates Marvin’s life by making him the star of his own fictional adventures. From WWII hospital ships, mishaps in Mexico, the open seas and Oscar night, to on-set stoushes and much more, LEE ranges from the gleefully gonzo to the painfully personal.

With an intro by Mike White, and fiction by Scott Phillips, Heath Lowrance, Roger Smith, Johnny Shaw, Jenna Bass, Adrian McKinty, Jake Hinkson, Ray Banks, James Hopwood, Erik Lundy, Eric Beetner, Luke Preston, Nigel Bird, Ryan K. Lindsay, Andrew Nette, Cameron Ashley and Jimmy Callaway.

Luke Preston

Luke spent most of his twenties as a freelance writer and listening to rock ‘n roll. He drinks heavily on occasion, is a half decent musician and his idea of a good time involves a jukebox designed to bleed ears. Luke’s work has been recognised by The Inside Film Awards, MTV and The ATOM Awards. He writes in cafes, bars and in parking lots on the back of old fuel receipts and cigarette packets. He doesn’t believe in writers block or in the magic bullet theory and his favourite album is Exile on Main Street. Luke’s writing is as much influenced by AC/DC and Johnny Cash as it is by Richard Stark and Raymond Chandler. He is undertaking a Master of Screenwriting at the Victorian College of the Arts and has absolutely no intention of moving to a shack in the middle of nowhere. He likes bad traffic, noisy neighbours, cheap beer, loud bars and has been occasionally known to howl at the moon.

Andrew Nette

I’m a writer based in Melbourne, Australia, with a fascination for crime fiction and film, obscure pulp novels and all things Asian. I lived in Southeast Asia for six years in the nineties, based in Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, as well as traveling around the wider region. During that time, I worked as a journalist, and as a communications consultant for the United Nations and a number of non-government organisations. I have since travelled frequently in Asia and lived in Phnom Penh with my family for a year in 2008, where I wrote for the international news wire, Inter Press Service, and worked on a European television documentary on the international tribunal into the crimes committed by the Khmer Rouge. My first book, Ghost Money, set in Cambodia in the mid-nineties, will be published in the second half of 2012 by Snubnose Press. I’m one of the founders of Crime Factory Publications, a Melbourne-based small press specialising in crime fiction, and help edit Crime Factory, its on-line magazine, which appears four times a year. I am also one of the editors of Crime Factory Publication’s second book, Crime Factory: Hard Labour, an anthology of short Australian crime fiction, due for release in August 2012. My film and book reviews have appeared in numerous other print and digital publications and forums. I’m the Australian contributor for the popular UK site, Crime Fiction Lover. for more:  http://www.pulpcurry.com/about-pulp-curry/
