RARA-AVIS: Hoboes: Fred MacIsaac and Martin Goldsmith

From: juri.nummelin@pp.inet.fi

These came to mind:

Rambler Murphy in Fred MacIsaac's pulp stories is something of a hobo. He's a journalist wandering around, as his nickname suggests, and he stops by cities to make big news items and articles. Once he's done, he leaves for another city. The stories appeared in Dime Detective in 1933-1940. There ought to be a collection of them.

Does Martin Goldsmith's DETOUR count as a hobo story? I haven't read it (nor seen the film (!)), but there's plenty of hitch-hiking in there.
