From iamsinatra

From Christoper2006

"I can't imagine life before Clute and Edwards!...their analysis is simply amazing"
From Anonymous

"A must for any fan of noir"
From The Cubist

"Next time I see those Clute and Edwards punks, I'm putting them up against the wall and sticking a pair of pistols in their spines. No, they don't owe me money. They owe me *hours*. Hours I could have been writing that I instead spent listening to their brilliant and insightful 'Behind the Black Mask' podcasts. (And that's to say nothing of their narcotic-like "Out of the Past" film noir podcast...try kicking *that* friggin' habit.) Someday when I die, and I realize that I've written two or three fewer books than I'd intended, I'll be going to my grave cursing the names Clute and Edwards. Damn you both. Damn you both to hell."
From Duane Swierczynski, Author of Expiration Date and Fun and Games
