Ballard wrote great hardboiled prose.
Bowling Green's collection of his short stories, Hollywood Troubleshooter, not only contains several of his best yarns from Black Mask, it also has a truly fine memoir of writing for that magazine by Ballard.
He decided to try to write for Black Mask while reading The Maltese Falcon out of the magazine while riding on a San Francisco street car. Wonderful stuff.

They were almost free back then at 25 cents it would seem now, but not everybody had that much to pay for a magazine. It went for food or gas.

Here's an interview I did with Ballard for Armchair Detective in 1976:
