    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. Never before in audio, these vintage stories are the darkest of the dark, and the best of the best.

    Crime fiction fans old and new will delight in rediscovering these taut, character-rich, heart-stopping tales, now on audio for the first time.

    This book wasn???t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    sixty and over


    What could the authors have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make them cut the intro to three or four minutes. But of course they are all probably dead.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Not at all


    What character would you cut from Black Mask 1: Doors in the Dark - and Other Crime Fiction from the Legendary Magazine?

    The guy who did the introduction.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm driving 120 miles to deliver stuff for a family get together and started this book.

    The introduction included hundreds of people (editors, former editors, their lawyers, their street addresses in New York etc.) History of ownership of various magazines, history of publications during the Civil War and other exciting stuff.

    After a half hour of this stuff I reached into cutlery case drew out a knife and stabbed myself in the heart. Unfortunately since I was driving I didn't see what kind of knife it was and I had picked out a butter knife and now I just have painful bruise on my chest.
