RE: RARA-AVIS: Madman on a Drum by NR DeMexico: Crider

Damon Knight recounts that Larry Shaw did indeed use the pseudonym N. R.
(for "Not Really") DeMexico in his history of the NYC-based group of young writers, artists, and editors THE FUTURIANS (John Day 1977, iirc). But 1944 might be a bit early for him. Then again, maybe not. TM

Madman on a Drum is an obscure book by N. R. De Mexico, published as a paperback original by Cavalcade in 1944.

 As far as I know, nobody knows whether de Mexico (also the author of the highly collectible Marijuana Girl) isa real name or a pen name. If it's a pen name, two people (including Larry Shaw) have been suggested as possibilities.
