Picasso Smith, Jr.
Created by Hugh Lessig

Now here's a chip off the old block. Reporter PICASSO SMITH, JR., like his old man, Picasso Smith, Sr., is a newshawk, but for The River City Blade, not The Frisco Foil.

Author Hugh Lessig, besides being a contributor to this site, is a newspaper reporter himself in the Richmond, Virginia area. Many of his stories honor the spirit of the hardboiled newspaperman, including his hero Kennedy, the hard-drinking reporter created by Frederick Nebel. He writes about another ace reporter, Alamo Barnes, whose adventures take place right about now -- and of course, Picasso Jr. He's now at work on a Picasso Smith Jr. novel, and has written several short stories that have nothing to do with newspapers or reporters or even drinking. They're just stories.
