Sintesi dell'editore

In the1930s and '40s, Black Mask was the single most important magazine for the modern mystery field. Here, writers such as Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, and Earl Stanley Gardner reshaped the established view of mystery fiction, creating the "hard-boiled" private eye.

Now this series resurrects from those pages the toughest of tough detectives in sonic dramatizations from the award-winning Hollywood Theater of the Ear.

Stories included in this volume are "Lost and Found" by Hugh B. Cave, "Pigeon Blood" by Paul Cain, "Rough Justice" by Frederick Nebel, "Black" by Paul Cain, "The Missing Mr. Lee" by Hugh B. Cave, "Trouble Chaser" by Paul Cain, "Too Many Have Lived" by Dashiell Hammett, "Taking His Time" by Reuben J. Shay, and "Waiting for Rusty" by William Cole.

"These shorts, highly acclaimed in the 1930s, are given new life by some of the best voices of our time." ( AudioFile)

I didn't know whether to star-rate this title without the warning or after so I gave it stars based on my enjoyment. HOWEVER:
I bought several of the individual Black Mask tales and loved them. However, this offering is just a compilation of the items I already bought singly. Beware - buy this and avoid the individual offerings.
On a better note, I loved these. I'm a fan of old time radio and really enjoyed these attempts to recreate those days. If you're careful and buy wisely, you're in for a treat.

Back to the Future

What made the experience of listening to Black Mask Audio Magazine, Volume 1 the most enjoyable?

The Audible rendition took me back to the days of radio drama, the Theatre of the Mind. Well done with careful attention to detail.

Avoid This One

If you want good pulp magazine dramatizations get Jack Webb in Pat Novak for Hire from 1940s radio, and forget this modern attempt at faking it. I'm glad some actors found voice work, but their period characters are just generalized stereotypes and sometimes painful to listen to. A few "hard-boiled" leads sound like they've done infomercials. The stores are under-dramatized, probably because they are faithful to the originals (or maybe not), and several end abruptly leaving a listener wondering what comes next. Forget it.
