Marvin H. Albert was very appreciated here, both as a person and as a writer, and a collection of 22 short stories written in the manner of Albert by famous French crime fiction writers or specialists was published a few months ago under the title 'Requiem pour un muckracker'. I only read 4 or 5 due to lack of time, but those ranged from excellent to very good.

In addition to Marvin H. Albert himself ('L'homme qui attend') RPUM contains , short stories by (among others) G.J. Arnaud, Didier Daeninckx, Gerard Delteil, Claude Mesplede, Jacques Mondoloni, Jean-Hughes Oppel, Jean-Bernard Pouy, Tito Topin, and Marc Villard. The stories all bear the title of an existing work by Albert and Patrick Raynal (the publisher of Serie Noire) wrote the afterword while Roger Martin wrote the foreword.

The references are: Requiem pour un muckracker, 餩tions Baleine, published october 1999 ISBN for the book: 2-84219-236-2
