A study of series characters in the early pulp magazines. Thousands of detective stories lie unexamined in the early pulp magazines. Published between 1900-1930, these stories are generally unknown. Yet their influence lingers unseen, part of the history of the detective story as it developed in the popular magazines. More than fifty magazine series characters have been selected to illustrate that development. 307 pages with notes, bibliography, magazine appearances and index. A fine copy in fine and bright dust jacket. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 40158
