willeford is the man. along with jim thompson, david goodis and dan marlowe, the holy four of pulp writing. i own about six different copies of cockfighter, the black lizard version should be easy to find on ebay or abebooks for a bargain price. The Burnt Orange Heresy and Woman Chaser are some other Willeford must-reads. i love the guy so much, i actually bought a couple books from his personal collection after he passed away.
