The Strange Case of Iva Grey

The Strange Case of Iva Grey (Black Mask eBook)

Wacky as a loon—that was Connelly’s first impression of the Grey gal when she walked into his office and offered him a retainer for protecting her from the man she loved. And who could blame him? It was a million-buck check she presented to that hard-boiled investigator and the signature it bore was simply “The Man in the Moon!”

Somewhere in Mexico: The Complete Black Mask Cases of Jerry Frost, Volume 1

Somewhere in Mexico: The Complete Black Mask Cases of Jerry Frost, Volume 1

Remembered for his novel They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?, author Horace McCoy began his writing career as a mainstay during the golden age of Black Mask Magazine, selling nearly 20 stories to editor Joseph T. Shaw. A former aviator, McCoy penned 14 gritty stories of Jerry Frost for Black Mask: a flying Texas Ranger, one of “Hell’s Stepsons” who patrolled the border. It was McCoy’s greatest work for the pulps prior to departing for a lengthy career as a scriptwriter.

This edition collects the first half of the Frost series, most of which have never before been reprinted. Also including an all-new introduction by John Wooley.

The Complete Exploits of the Notorious Sea Fox

The Complete Exploits of the Notorious Sea Fox

One of the most infamous series from the pulp magazines is collected for the first time. Guineaman ship captain Cap’n Barnabas N. Pepper—the “Sea Fox”—is the master of the brigantine Wild Pigeon, which plies the waters of the Atlantic between the west coast of Africa and the east coast of the United States, in the years before the American Civil War. Over the course of seven stories, author James K. Waterman’s background as a sailor gave these stories an undeniable air of authenticity, and the plot twists he brings to them are clever and unexpected. It’s easy to imagine that readers of the 1920s (some of whom probably remembered the Civil War) would accept and enjoy them. The Sea Fox series provides a vivid window into a long-gone era and does so by presenting stirring tales of courage and action, and as a series unlike anything else in the pulps. Includes the original illustrations and an all-new introduction which puts this series in its historical perspective.
