PULP NOW: AUSTRALIAN PRIVATE EYES!

PULP NOW: AUSTRALIAN PRIVATE EYES!

THE PULP CURRY WEBSITE HAS A GREAT POST TODAY ON SOME OF THE HOMEGROWN AUSTRALIAN PRIVATE EYES FROM THE 40s AND 50s . . .

The authors are unknown today, despite some selling in the millions in Australia and abroad. Gordon Clive Bleeck wrote over 200 novels, including PI stories, while working full time for NSW Railroads. Carter Brown, the alias of UK immigrant Alan G Yates, is associated with nearly 300 titles.

Starting off as a hugely popular radio program on the Macquarie Network, the PI Larry Kent inspired a series of novels by Don Haring, an American who lived in Australia or a time, and Queenslander Des R Dunn. Audrey Armitage and Muriel Watkins wrote over 20 novels featuring PI Johnny Buchanan under the pseudonym of KT McCall.
