And MAX KEENE, who showed up in two books, A Dame Called Murder (1955) and A Time For Murder (1956), put out by Graphic in the mid-fifties.

Milton Ozaki was a Chicago newspaperman, artist, tax attorney and beauty salon operator who turned to writing crime fiction after World War II, and gave us a couple of dozen hard-boiled novels, all but two of them paperback originals, and all of them full of enough sex, violence and over-boiled prose to fulfill all your daily cheese requirements. Pen names included Robert O. Saber and Mark Shane.



Written and compiled by Bill Crider, originally For EyeCon, 1995.
