  1. I'll be buying some of these books also at Windy City, especially the Roger Torrey collection. He has been unjustly forgotten and it's great that Black Dog Books is publishing some of his pulp fiction. In addition to his BLACK MASK work, he had an excellent series of PI stories in Street & Smith's DETECTIVE STORY in the 1940's. Unfortunately the series was cut short at about a dozen novelettes when Torrey drank himself to death. Two fisted drinkers may be hardboiled but they don't live long.

    Sai, I'll see you at Windy City in the hospitality room. I'll be the two fisted beer drinker in the corner.

    1. Looking forward to meeting again at Windy City. Keep up the record, Walker.

  2. Why is it that none of the write-ups for these books tell us pulp fans where the stories originally appeared? Am I missing it?

    1. Updated the post to mention where the stories came from. Thanks for the suggestion, and no, I don't think you missed them.
