Re: RARA-AVIS: Suggestions for new paperback line

From: Mario Taboada (

I would suggest something by William Campbell Gault. For example, his superb noir novel _Death Out of Focus_ was reprinted in an anthology years ago, but is of course out of print.

Other names: Malcolm Braly, Lionel White, Charles Williams, Norbert Davis (someone was going to reprint his three solo novels, did they?), and yes, Gil Brewer had something, a kind of contagious fever, that elevated him well above a hack. The late E. Richard Johnson is totally out of print, I think (IPL had reissued some of his stuff, but those reissues may be gone from the catalog, too).

I'll contact you if I think of other forgotten worthies.
