BLACK MASK 9: THE CORPSE DIDN'T KICK And Other Crime Fiction from the Legendary Magazine

by | Read by Bart Tinapp, Scott Brick, Eric Conger, Alan Winter, Carol Monda, Jeff Woodman

Mystery & Suspense • 6.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

The ninth volume of pulp crime stories from the legendary BLACK MASK magazine doesn’t pull any punches. These six stories showcase some surprisingly compelling writing by work-a-day writers, most of whom never achieved wide recognition. In this audio collection each of the stories gets its own narrator, and each one is stylistically on the mark, evoking the rough-and tumble thirties and forties with picturesque, streetwise, and world-weary voices. The banner piece is an early Raymond Chandler story featuring Carmady, a private eye who was the template for Philip Marlowe. Scott Brick’s performance of this story is just on the edge of hammy and rightly evokes its B-movie ambiance. F.T. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2012]
