    ----------I'll have to second your opinion of FAST ONE by Paul Cain. I've read it more than once and still remember the first time I read it back in the 1970's. I had obtained the several issues of BLACK MASK containing the novelets and the combination of the great hardboiled, downbeat story with the pulpwood scent remains in my memory to this day.
