Thanks for pointing out this very cool article, Al. I've read Himes and Slim, Nathan Heard (his Howard Street is amazing). I've got a number of the other mentioned authors on my shelves, but haven't read them. (I tend to pick up most Holloway House books I see of a certain vintage.) Nice to have someone pointing out the best. For instance, I'd heard Goines was very hit and miss. Nice to have a specific recommendation of Daddy Cool, of which I have an old Holloway House first printing (marred by someone using the list of Goines's titles at the beginning as a checklist, not to say it's near mint condition otherwise). Interestingly, the ads in the back pages include one for Kenyatta's Escape by Al C. Clark; this is now credited to Goines.
