Max Nolan, Erotic P.I.

Created by Spenser Fortune (pseud. of Robert Randisi)

Back in the seventies, MAX NOLAN (a good P.I. name, that) was an "erotic" private eye who appeared in at least four (and possibly as many as fourteen) short stories in Beaver Magazine (a low-end porn mag, not the Canadian history magazine), written by "Spenser Fortune" and boasting such titles as "The Missing Bust" and "Hitch Humper."

The thing is that Spenser Fortune, it turns out, was actually PWA founder Robert Randisi.

Bob cheerfully confesses that "They were fun, and they made the mortgage payment each month that I did one."

Oh, Bob, we hardly know ye.
