What People are Saying About This
“Hardboiled crime fiction was never better than in the pages of Black Mask magazine, and Black Mask has never been better than in these vibrant, exciting audio editions. Close your eyes and you can practically smell the gunfire and whiskey.”
“The stories of Black Mask and the audio book are a love-match as inevitable and passionate and entrancing as a private eye and a femme fatale. This is a series that will make you want to get in your car in the middle of a rainy night and drive around listening.”
Robert Olen Butler, author of The Hot Country, a Christopher Marlowe Cobb Thriller
“Pitch-perfect performances of stories that are as rollicking as they are artful. I drove from Delaware to Mississippi on one long Black Mask bender, and if it weren’t for the Gulf of Mexico I’d still be driving.”
Michael Kardos, author of The Three-Day Affair
“The Black Mask Audio Series from Otto Penzler is a tribute to early pulp mystery and detective fiction that was highly entertaining, exciting and terrifically written. But this collection is far more than a nostalgic salute to the past, it’s downright fun to enjoy in the present.”
