Numerous subscribers have requested an ALL-CRIME listing--and this one should provide a quick fix for that specific craving!

DIME DETECTIVE was a seminal crime title--in the same league as BLACK MASK and DETECTIVE FICTION WEEKLY--with the best authors, continuing series of hard-boiled detectives, but with the wildest covers in the genre--a blistering gallery (primarily in the '30s) of grotesque torture, babes in bondage, and bizarre villains, all the elements that made the pulps the most politically-incorrect medium on the planet and the most fun! There were 273 issues published; almost 75% are listed here. We haven't seen runs half as extensive as this one offered for sale in 30 years!

And the topper is a collection of gangster pulps--a genre within a genre that was ignored by collectors until recently. Like the DIME DETECTIVEs, they represent the most issues offered in a block ever--so expect them to be hit hard. Final thought: anyone interested in a large run of BLACK MASK and DETECTIVE FICTION WEEKLY should contact us before we break up the collection in a future list.
