RARA-AVIS: Re:Milton Lesser (Stephen Marlowe)

Williamsburg, Virginia is where Marlowe (then Milton Lesser) went to college. I recall a "Meet the Author" piece in an old Amazing Stories that mentioned he was a graduate of William and Mary.

I'd be interested in the review. I just obtained a copy of the Fall 1954 issue of the pulp Triple Detective with a story "If Not Worms, Fishes" under the Marlowe byline. That and 1954 Ace novel CATCH THE BRASS RING are the earliest use of the Stephen Marlowe name that I am aware of in mystery fiction. In the science fiction pulps it goes back to 1951.
