Book Description

July 3 2012 Black Mask (Book 9)
From its launch in 1920 until its demise in 1951, the magazine Black Mask published pulp crime fiction. The first hard-boiled detective stories appeared on its pages. Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler, Erle Stanley Gardner and John D. MacDonald got their start in Black Mask. The urban crime stories that appeared in Black Mask helped to shape American culture. Modern computer games, films, and television are rooted in the fiction popularized by “the seminal and venerated mystery pulp magazine” (Booklist).

Otto Penzler selected and wrote introductions to the best of the best, the darkest of these dark, vintage stories for the collection The Black Lizard Big Book of Black Mask Stories. Now that collection is available for the first time on audio.

    Review

    “There is gold in every set. . . . Hitting like a Tommy gun blast, these pulse-pounding collections will leave mystery hounds panting for the next installment.”
           —Library Journal [starred review]

    “Any fan of crime stories and radio shows will find these a compelling listen, spiced with a variety of accomplished narrators.”
          —The Bookwatch



    “These six stories showcase some surprisingly compelling writing by work-a-day writers, most of whom never achieved wide recognition. . . . Each of the stories gets its own narrator, and each one is stylistically on the mark, evoking the rough-and tumble thirties and forties with picturesque, streetwise, and world-weary voices.”
          —AudioFile

    All the stories are great. "Try the Girl" by Raymond Chandler was very good. "T. McGuirk Steals a Diamond" by Ray Cummings is a delightful romp of Pulp action.
