Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Detective Novels, February 1944
A gun-toting clown, a gorilla, and a blonde in a skimpy outfit...what more does a pulp cover need, anyway? Inside this eye-catching issue of DETECTIVE NOVELS is a Candid Camera Kid yarn by Norman Daniels (a pretty good series; I've read several installments from it), a Norman Conquest story by Berkeley Gray reprinted from the British magazine THE THRILLER, and some assorted short stories. Somebody needs to do a complete collection of the Candid Camera Kid stories. I wouldn't be surprised to see that one of these days.
