Speaking of Chet Drum and Stephen Marlowe, has anybody read the "Double In Trouble" team-up with Drum and Shell Scott? I picked it up a year or so ago but haven't read it yet. --Brian

I read this one many years ago and liked it, though not as well as the regular Shell Scott novels. Drum suffers a little as a character when he's stacked up next to Shell. Not nearly as colorful. But Marlowe's a dependable writer. All his books that I've read are entertaining. I learned from Bill Crider not long ago that Marlowe wrote some Ace Double mysteries as C.H. Thames, a name he also used on SF. I'm going to have to dig those out and read them.
