Joseph T. Shaw: The Man Behind Black Mask
by Milton Shaw
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….

Just Another Stiff: The Collected Hard-Boiled Stories of Race Williams, Volume 5
by Carroll John Daly, with an introduction by Brooks E. Hefner
Race Williams returns! Originally appearing in the pages of Black Mask magazine, author Carroll John Daly pioneered the hard-boiled detective P.I. story and perfected the genre with his classic character, Race Williams. Apart from the novel-length Race Williams stories, these classic hard-boiled thrillers have rarely been reprinted, if ever.
Volume 5 contains the first 11 Race Williams stories, all from 1935–38, as Daly left his long-time home of Black Mask for its main competitor, Dime Detective. And it’s prefaced by an all-new, scholarly introduction by Professor Brooks E. Hefner of James Madison University.
Just Another Stiff: The Collected Hard-Boiled Stories of Race Williams Volume 5 continues this most important series published in years on the history of the Hard-Boiled Detective story.

The Spider #18: The Flame Master
by Norvell W. Page writing as Grant Stockbridge, illustrations by John Fleming Gould and John Newton Howitt
Richard Wentworth was playing the most dangerous game in the world—a man-hunter outside the law; a righteous lone-wolf avenger of the weak; a scourge of the evil, the wicked and the corrupt! Loathed by the organized armies of the underworld, hunted ruthlessly by the forces of the law, he was ever between two raking cross-fires… Seldom, however, had the Spider, Master of men, faced the odds which challenged him when the man called Aronk Dong summoned all the underworld to serve him in the most ghastly campaign of rampant crime and wholesale slaughter this country had ever experienced. Armed with a weapon which struck through stone walls at victims sleeping peacefully in their beds, it was small wonder that criminals everywhere hailed the new leader—and flocked in evil glee to his dark banner!

Another of the author’s popular historical sagas, this is a stirring, entrancing story of Erin when Cromwell was campaigning, and when the fighting heritage that is every Irishman’s found vent through sword and ax and fire.

Blood Royal (The H. Bedford-Jones Library)
by H. Bedford-Jones
“Had the king lived, there had been no murder of womenfolk; but Bedfort had shot down the king from behind and fled to Mackinac, untouched of the law, and the kingdom had fallen into hands weaker and more cruel. Therefore had come voyager, lumberjack, fisherman, bearing them retribution.”
Written in the early days of the career of the prolific “King of the Pulps”—H. Bedford-Jones—Blood Royal is one of the earliest of his historical adventure stories set in his native Canada. It’s a fast-paced northwest adventure… the type which made H. Bedford-Jones one of the most beloved authors of the first half of the Twentieth Century.
