Speaking of Sam Fuller, I was reading a short bio of him the other day
that leads me to a question. Apparently Fuller's life wasn't far from
Willeford's: he rode the rails in the Depression, wrote some pulp
novels in the '30s, fought in Europe in the war and won a number of
decorations, held various jobs here and there, and then settled into
movies (whereas Willeford settled down to teaching and writing, more
or less). The thing on Fuller described his novels as hardboiled, and
I wonder if anyone here knows anything about them.
