MEDIA REVIEWS
...a necessity for those who do not believe that the history of mystery fiction ended with Mickey Spillane, and that everything since his time can be lumped together as 'contemporary' and dismissed. * The Armchair Detective *
Each writer covered here deserves renewed attention...A very interesting book. * Coast Book Review Service *
...an excellent book... * Paperback Parade *
The materials for...a history of popular taste are what Jon L. Breen and Martin Harry Greenberg offer us... * Modern Fiction Studies *
A smart beginning into the publishing history of the paperback mystery originals and their authors. * Murder Ad Lib *
