Here's another message from Dr. Johnson-Woods. All interesting links, and the third one, for her book, will be of special interest to antipodean rare birds.

---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Sat, 06 Mar 2004 10:08:25 +1000 From: Dr Toni Margaret JOHNSON-WOODS <t.johnsonwoods@uq.edu.au> To: William Denton <buff@pobox.com> Subject: Re: enquiry for rara-avis
Thanks for getting back to me and at the risk of boring you; I'm writing a book in Carter Brown (and comparing/contrast with Hank Janson/Mickey Spillane) and am awash with covers, artists, let alone the stories. Here's a generalist article on hardboiled fiction I wrote for _Crime Factory_ http://www.uq.edu.au/~entjohns/Hardboiled_Pulp.html
The following *might* be of interest because it deals with an area the group are often interested in, "pulp" fiction (ie PBOs in soft covers): http://www.nla.gov.au/pub/nlanews/2002/nov02/article1.html
My book on *pulp* fiction (complete with *80* colour plates, I know I couldn't believe it myself) is due for release in Sept and while it's all Australian pulp some of the themes/genres are universal to pulp http://www.nla.gov.au/apps/onlineshop?action=OLSDisplay&id=nla.int-ls10766-bk
This is all just for the group's elucidation and in case anyone has any information that would be useful or you want to direct my way. . .
