RARA-AVIS: Frederick Nebel, a fun pulpster

From: Mario Taboada ( matrxtech@yahoo.com)

Inspired by our proposed historical survey of the hardboiled genre, I slightly updated a nostalgia review of Frederick Nebel's _The Adventures of Cardigan_ (an anthology of Dime Detective novelettes from the thirties).

I reread a couple of the stories, which are great, lowbrow fun. There is a special animal freshness in these violent tales. Yes, they are old and slangy, but once you're into them, you are sure to get caught. It's a glimpse of the testosteronic thrill that the original pulp readers must have felt.

The review will be at thrillingdetective.com.
