In September 1914, Mencken became the new editor of The Smart Set, the magazine that he began to edit with partner, drama critic George Jean Nathan. Their discovery of new, realistic writers included Ruth Suckow, Eugene O'Neill, Willa Cather, Ben Hecht, F. Scott Fitzgerald and James Branch Cabell, Edgar Lee Masters, W. E. B. Dubois, James Joyce, as well as Latino and immigrant writers. Together, they were viewed as the leaders in changing the literary and dramatic scene. To offset the costs of printing, Mencken and Nathan launched Black Mask, a detective magazine that launched the career of Dashiell Hammett.
