Carey Rix

Created by Fredric Brown (1906-72)

Another of pulpmeister's Brown's hapless detectives, CAREY RIX was a pretty generic private eye; likeable enough but distinguished chiefly by the peculiarity of the cases he took on which -- given Brown's skewered sense of relativity and sleight-of-hand plotting -- were pretty peculiar.

Rix only appeared in two short stories.


  • "The Strange Sisters Strange" (December 28, 1940, Detective Fiction Weekly)
  • "Client Unknown" (April 1941, The Phantom Detective)
