I just finished reading my first story by Fredric Brown, "Obit for Obie," in the anthology "Pure Pulp." I loved the story for several reasons, partly because it's about a newspaper reporter, which is my day job. Does anyone know if Brown's short stories have been anthologized? He has a wonderful ear for dialogue, and his prose is lean and hard. The intro mentions three novels, "The Fabulous Clipjoint," "The Screaming Mimi" and "The Far Cry," which I plan to seek out. Any others worthy of mention?
