Murder Costs Money: The Complete Black Mask Cases of Rex Sackler

Murder Costs Money: The Complete Black Mask Cases of Rex Sackler

Author D.L. Champion’s knack for penning quirky series characters reached a new height with his stories of skinflint shamus Rex Sackler, one of Black Mask’s longest-running and most beloved series. Already a reader favorite for his Inspector Allhoff stories in Black Mask’s companion title, Dime Detective, Champion chronicled the offbeat cases of Rex Sackler, the greedy gumshoe who “could squeeze a nickel till the buffalo cried uncle.”

The Rex Sackler series allowed Champion to display his talent for sardonic wit and humor in more than two dozen frequently hilarious novelettes published in Black Mask during the 1940s. This volume collects the first eight stories. With an all-new introduction by Ed Hulse.

Let the Dead Alone: The Complete Black Mask Cases of Luther McGavock

Let the Dead Alone: The Complete Black Mask Cases of Luther McGavock

The Luther McGavock stories are not your garden variety hardboiled detective yarns. These Black Mask stories are so rich in place and detail that they almost seem a travelogue of small-town life in the Deep South.

Having bounced around to just about every major agency in the country, Luther McGavock finally settled in the Atherton Browne Agency in Memphis, and his cases take him to small towns in the Tennessee hill-country. As an outsider, McGavock is our tour guide to this odd world of the Deep South.

Written by one of the most polished writers to see print in Black Mask, author Merle Constiner’s writing is vivid, his characters complex, and his mysteries deep. This edition collects the first four stories in the series. Includes an all-new introduction by Evan Lewis.

Dead Evidence: The Complete Black Mask Cases of Harrigan

Dead Evidence: The Complete Black Mask Cases of Harrigan

Quite likely one of the most hyped—and most mysterious—Black Mask authors to ever appear in its pages, Ed Lybeck made his debut as one of editor Joesph Shaw’s new faces in the wake of Dashiell Hammett’s departure. For Black Mask, Lybeck penned the hard-boiled stories of Francis St. Xavier Harrigan, a former gunman-turned-reporter for the New York Leader.

Though his duration as a Black Mask author was brief, his status as one of its greatest alums was certified by his inclusion in the historic retrospective of Black Mask, The Hard-boiled Omnibus. This edition collects—for the first time—the entirety of Lybeck’s Black Mask output. Includes an all-new introduction by pulp historian Will Murray.

Blood on the Curb by Joseph T. Shaw

Blood on the Curb

Joseph T. Shaw, the editor of Black Mask Magazine, has written one of the most exciting adventure mysteries of 1936.

Blood on the Curb is the dramatic story of the New York Police Department’s bloody battle to wipe out the famous “Black Hand” gang which terrorized the Lower East Side.

Newly-recruited Paul Cardine is placed in charge of a special squad of officers—all of Italian decent—to find the man at the top of what appears to be a consolidated conglomerate of crime families.

Never before reprinted, Blood on the Curb is one of Shaw’s rarest hardcovers, and it contains all the hallmarks of his hard-boiled novels that saw publication in Black Mask Magazine.

Joseph T. Shaw: The Man Behind Black Mask

Joseph T. Shaw: The Man Behind Black Mask

Joseph T. “Cap” Shaw enjoyed several distinguished careers—military man and champion fencer, among them—before he assumed the editorial chair of the most significant fiction magazine since The Strand gave the world the immortal Sherlock Holmes. Between 1926 and 1936, Shaw edited Black Mask magazine. The pioneering first stories of Carroll John Daly and Dashiell Hammett had just begun to appear in its pages. Shaw recognized in their hard-boiled treatment of the American crime story the potential for a new literary school. Working closely with his hand-picked writers, he pulled the magazine back from the brink of cancellation, and transformed the staid detective story into a vigorous and modern genre, discovering and championing important inheritors of this new tradition, among them, Raymond Chandler.

But there is more to Joe Shaw than his editorial career. Here, in the first biography ever written of this editorial giant, his son relates the full fascinating story of the man behind the revolutionary editorial persona….

Terry Mack #2: Action! Action! (Black Mask eBook)

Terry Mack #2: Action! Action! (Black Mask eBook)

A chance meeting in the night brings together New York City’s roughest private eye Three Gun Terry and runt-of-a-millionaire John Rogo. Over a cup of coffee, Rogo relays a tale to Terry that is all too familiar, despite its setting. Twenty five years ago, Rogo, his brother, and their friends were in South Africa hunting when they discovered fields of diamonds. They all looked to become the next Morgan and Rockefeller. Then, they stuck him: killed his brother and left him for dead, leaving him the deed to an empty mine as a last, cruel joke. But, fate is twisted. Rogo’s mine churns out money by the boatload. The only problem? His newfound wealth attracts the attention of his former comrades, and now they’re pushing him for their share. Rogo needs Terry to find these men, and dispose of them, before he ends up face-down in a city street, a knife in his back. Terry doesn’t hesitate, and is only too eager to take on the challenge, and the cash. But with three men on his tail, and his name less than private, Three Gun Terry will have to shoot his way out before the end, if he wants to survive.
