Re: RARA-AVIS: Fredric Brown

Date: 11 Oct 2002

I'd recommend the following of his novels in the mystery field:

any of the Ed and Am Hunter series:

The Fabulous Clipjoint (1947) The Dead Ringer (1948) The Bloody Moonlight (1949) Compliments of a Fiend (1950) Death Has Many Doors (1951) The Late Lamented (February 1959) Mrs. Murphy's Underpants (1963)

the first four (which are among the best to my way of thinking have just been reprinted in a one volume omnibus entitled:

Hunter and Hunted: The Ed and Am Hunter Novels, Part One (2002)

which you can find on Amazon.

Also recommended are:

The Screaming Mimi The Far Cry The Lenient Beast His Name Was Death

and Dennis McMillan published most of Brown's pulp magazine detective stories in several volumes during the 80's and 90's. Some are very rare and expensive, but some are easy to find and affordable. You might want to check out some of those.
