Date: 13 Dec 2002

Fans of Black Mask and early hard-boiled writing might be interested in a new biographical essay about Raoul Whitfield posted to The Pulp Rack website. You can read "Black Mask's Forgotten Man," more than 8,000 words about Whitfield, researched and written by Peter Ruber & Victor A. Berch, at this URL:


I hope to add the Whitfield bibliography to the site next week.

You'll also find on the site other fictioneer biographies, plus bibliographies for Norbert Davis and Erle Stanley Gardner, in the "Pulp Magazine History" section of the site:


For fans of more recent hard-boiled writing, you'll find reviews of Jean-Patrick Manchette's 3 TO KILL ("Reviving Hammett's Flitcraft") and Paco Ignacio Taibo II's FRONTERA DREAMS, a Hector Belascoaran Shayne novel
("Mexico's Pulp Private Eye"):
