Re: RARA-AVIS: Bruno Fischer

there's some weird stuff going on here ...

a few years ago, when i was adjuncting at a community college in southern pa, i met a faculty member named w. russel gray who shared an interest in everything crime and detection (with a soft spot for hard-boiled). he, oddly enough, recommended a text called DEFECTIVE DETECTIVES IN THE PULPS, edited by Hoppenstand & Brown. from what i recall, some oddball stuff about hemophiliac 'tecs and ones w/o faces.

the thing is, another russell gray (different spelling, natch, a.k.a. bruno fischer), may have contributed a story to this text. i actually thought the two were the same (cue eerie music) until i found out that gray/fischer died a few years ago.

does anyone out there know (or have) the contents of the above text? whew. i think i'll lie down now.
