Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: New Detective Magazine, January 1942

This issue of NEW DETECTIVE MAGAZINE sports a striking cover (I don't know the artist) and features some fine authors: Frederick C. Davis, William R. Cox, Robert Sidney Bowen, Donald G. Carmack, and a few who are unfamiliar to me: Richard L. Hobart, Don Joseph, and John Hawkins. Davis, Cox, and Bowen are enough to make an issue worth reading, though.

Don Joseph is the pseudonym of Donald Joseph Holmes.
John Hawkins (1910 - 1978) wrote many short stories and starting from 1940 some novels with his brother Ward (1912 - ?).
I suggest "The Floods of Fear" (aka A Girl, A Man and a River) New York, Dodd, Mead 1954 basis for the 1958 movie of the same name, directed by Charles Crichton and starring Howard Keel and Jane Heywood.
Tiziano Agnelli

Yep, I should have remembered John and Ward Hawkins. I ordered a copy of THE FLOODS OF FEAR.
