Well, okay, the issue is a little late - but then, it's still Fall. For a few more days, anyway.

This issue covers hard-boiled fiction and characters from the crime pulps. Monte Herridge contributes an overview of Erle Stanley Gardner's "Senor Lobo" stories from DETECTIVE FICTION WEEKLY. Will Murray offers a brief tribute to Grace Culver, the feisty female detective who plied her trade in a series of short stories for THE SHADOW MAGAZINE. Gary Lovisi documents Britain's post-World War II boom in hard-boiled crime digests. And Alfred Jan quotes the fulsome praise for detective pulps offered by world-class philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, who had a special fondness for yarns written by BLACK MASK alumnus Norbert Davis.

The legendary BLACK MASK figures in three other articles as well. In a 1929 piece penned for WRITER'S DIGEST, long-time literary agent August Lenniger interviews MASK editor Joseph T. Shaw, analyzes an entire issue on a story-by-story basis, and offers tips for aspiring authors. We've also reprinted E. R. Hagemann's excellent 1981 article on the making of THE HARD-BOILED OMNIBUS,
"Cap" Shaw's 1946 anthology of classic MASK stories. Finally, in this issue's installment of "Pulp Page to Silver Screen," BnT editor Ed Hulse weighs in on the 1937 screen adaptation of Frederick Nebel's MacBride & Kennedy series from the MASK.

I just took delivery of the print run. Subscribers' copies will be mailed out over the next few days.

As always, single-copy price is six bucks. Please add $1.50 for postage and send payment to Ed Hulse, 2467 Route 10 East, Bldg. 15, Apt. 4B, Morris Plains, N.J. 07950.
