    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).

    Widely anthologized and the author's best-known work, The Most Dangerous Game features as its main character a big-game hunter from New York who falls off a yacht and swims to an isolated island in the Caribbean. There he is hunted by a Cossack aristocrat. The story is an inversion of the big-game hunting safaris in Africa and South America that were fashionable among wealthy Americans in the 1920s. Adapted many times to stage and screen. A thrilling listen!

    At first glance, 'The Most Dangerous Game’ by Richard Connell, ‘Paul’s Case’ by Willa Cather, and ‘The Beast in the Jungle’ by Henry James have very little in common. In ‘The Most Dangerous Game’ Sanger Rainsford, an accomplished big game hunter, is marooned on a remote island that is inhabited by another big game hunter, General Zaroff, who has found a very twisted way to add thrills to his hunting parties.

    "J'ai toujours pensé" dit Rainsford "que le Buffle du Cap est le plus dangereux de tous les gros gibiers." Pour un moment le général ne répondit pas, il avait sur les lèvres son étrange sourire. Puis il dit lentement : "Non. Vous vous trompez, Monsieur. Le buffle du Cap n'est pas le gibier le plus dangereux. (...) Sur cette île", dit-il de la même voix lente, "je chasse un gibier plus dangereux encore."
