Nick Blade

Created by Edward Churchill

Pulpster Edward Charchill's NICK BLADE was yet another P.I. who never quite made it to series status the heyday of the pulps, only appearing twice.

Still, someone must have thought highly of him or his author -- his debut was featured on the particularly striking (ie: I liked it) cover of the September 1948 issue of Popular Detective.

Sadly, the LA private dick's second and final appearance was several years later, in the pages of Triple Detective.


  • "Death Halts a Holiday" (September 1948, Popular Detective)
  • "Talk About Murder" (Spring 1952, Triple Detective)
