I like what Dewey I've read. It's a shame that he's largely forgotten. Good for guys like me who read him--we can get his novels cheap. I think I mentioned that I recently read Mountain Girl by one Cord Wainer, when about half way through I recognized the style as Dewey's and sure enough, that was one of his pseudonyms.
