Re: RARA-AVIS: Brackett & cross genre influences

Burroughs is always worth reading. What he lacked in subtlety (everything) he made up in force and momentum. I find him compulsively readable. Not that long ago, I read an essay by Vidal in which he echoes these marvellous insights of mine.

Since we are monthless, how about a Max Brand month? He was hardboiled, he wrote tons of books and stories, and, at least in the US, his stuff is easily available. Especially his westerns.

Did he farm out? Just asking.
