THE BLACK MASK 1: DOORS IN THE DARK And Other Crime Fiction from the Legendary Magazine

by | Read by Eric Conger, Oliver Wyman, Alan Sklar, Jeff Gurner, Pete Larkin

Mystery & Suspense • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

This first in a series of audiobooks features five stories from the great pulp magazine BLACK MASK, as well as a lengthy introduction by Keith Alan Deutsch. The introduction, read by Eric Conger, is informative, but at 38 minutes it goes on too long. The stories, on the whole, are worth the wait. The collection leads off with Erle Stanley Gardner’s “Come and Get It,” read with gruff humor by Oliver Wyman. “Arson Plus,” by Dashiell Hammett (under a pseudonym), is read by Alan Sklar. Jeff Gurner reads Lester Dent’s “Luck,” and Pete Larkin reads stories by two BLACK MASK mainstays, George Harmon Coxe and Frederick Nebel.
