Black Mask Stories #09: The Corpse Didn't Kick: And Other Crime Fiction from the Legendary Magazine Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Includes:
  • “The Black Bottle” by Whitman Chambers; read by Bart Tinapp
  • “The Corpse Didn't Kick” by Milton K. Ozaki; read by Bart Tinapp
  • “Try the Girl” by Raymond Chandler; read by Scott Brick
  • “Don't You Cry for Me” by Norbert Davis; read by Eric Conger
  • “T. McGuirk Steals a Diamond” by Ray Cummings; read by Alan Winter
  • “Wait for Me” by Steve Fisher; read by Carol Monda
  • “Ask Me Another” by Frank Gruber; read by Jeff Woodman 
  • Synopsis:

    Classic pulp fiction at its finest, drawn from the pages of the iconic magazine, Black Mask 9 features stories by Raymond Chandler, Whitman Chambers, Milton K. Ozaki, Norbert Davis, Ray Cummings, Steve Fisher, and Frank Gruber.

    Synopsis:

    Black Mask lives. . . . Read by top-notch performers.”
