Re: RARA-AVIS: Re: Fredric Brown news...

The lack of reprints suggests that an entire generation of mystery readers has grown up without knowing about Fredric Brown. It's sad, though he isn't the only great writer to tall into oblivion. The revolution of the mystery genre of the eighties
(Paretsky, Grafton, etc.) wasn't all good.

On the other hand, it's hard to imagine *any* reader not liking Brown. He's one of the most fun writers (as well as one of the greatest) in the mystery and SF genres.
