    Has anyone here read author Mel D. Ames? I had never heard of him before until today, when I found an anthology of his short stories from Mike Shayne Mystery Magazine. Seeing how they'd been published in MSMM, I bought it immediately. The book is called "Amazon. The Adventures of Detective-Lieutenant Cathy Carruthers." has anyone heard of this character before?


    I remember reading these stories when they came out in MSMM and liking them at the time, but I couldn't tell you anything else about them now. Too many years ago. And I never knew Ames or anything about him.

    Someone should collect the Major Lansing stories by William L. Fieldhouse that ran in MSMM about the same time. I recall enjoying them quite a bit.
