Recently Duane noted that:

"Interestingly enough, Dent's best HB work -- for BLACK MASK --
appeared in two stories featuring a character named Oscar Sale. Dent
scholar Will Murray -- I think it was Murray -- has suggested that
Dent named the character for Richard Sale, either consciously or not,
because he admired Sale's work."

It may be that Duane and Murray are right about Dent's naming his PI
character after Richard Sale, but, in the interests of accuracy, the
character's name is spelled differently. It's Oscar Sail. - Jim
