Hobart Lindsey & Marvia
Created by Richard A. Lupoff (pseudonym: Del Marston)
California insurance claims investigator HOBART LINDSEY and girlfriend/cop MARVIA PLUM have appeared in a string of cases that always seem to involve an obsessive collector of some kind, be it of comic books, classic cars or old time radio.
Adding to the charm of this series is the continuing relationship of one of crime fiction's longest-running interracial couples (he's white, she's black).
Richard A. Lupoff is a mass-culture historian and critic, having written extensively on everything from to Buck Rogers to Edgar Rice Burroughs, and novelist (mostly crime and science fiction), and also something of a obsessive collector himself, being the proud owner of thousands upon thousands of vintage paperbacks, comics and Lord-knows-what-else. He's also, fittingly enough, the author of The Great American Paperback, which draws upon his life-long interests, and actually uses scans from some of his collection.
Report respectfully submitted by Kevin Burton Smith. Thanks to Big Al Hubin for the well-deserved whack on the head.
