Yes, fantastic. I have a review coming. Very well chosen, strong representation of the Black Mask heavyweights and an intriguing choice of obscure writers. If you're a fan, plonk down your $25 for your own copy and have fun for years to come (short stories, especially pulp stories, are far more rereadable than novels).

Speaking of collections, I unearthed one called Tough Guys and Dangerous Dames, published by Barnes & Noble in the nineties. I am rereading it and it has very good stuff, including a totally crazy story by Donald Wandrei called The Lunatic Plague. Wandrei makes Bellem look sane!
