Collection of Frank Gruber’s Black Mask short stories about Oliver Quade, Encyclopedia salesman just released

MysteriousPress just released the complete short stories of Oliver Quade, encyclopedia salesman. These stories originally appeared in the Thrilling Detective and Black Mask magazines.

Kevin Burton Smith has an excellent summary of the Oliver Quade series over at the excellent Thrilling Detective website.

I have the earlier collection Brass Knuckles, and when this released, I bought it in ebook format immediately to read the four stories that were not collected in that book. The stories are light, fun reads. If you read one or two at a time, they’re good. Otherwise you might overdose on Gruber’s pulp formula.
