Hi Ho Silver. . . the Black Mask Rides Again Dec 30, 2007
These action packed adventures bring back the days of yore to this old man. This might not be Shakespere, but guess which one I'm reading . . . that's right, easy, action packed, white knight-good guy mysteries and crime. . . I love 'em. Erle Stanley Gardner is my cult favorite.
