"Boom! An explosion of pain roared through me, blasted me all the way to my shoestrings. Klieg lights made pinwheel patterns in my glims, an atomic bomb took my grey cells apart, and I plunged into a deep black well of unconsciousness. For me it was the end of a chapter." Those inimitable words from Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective, came from the pen of famed author Robert Leslie Bellem. Turner was hard-boiled shamus who made Tinsel-town his stomping grounds. Crime amongst the glitter. The character made his debut in 1934 as a short story in Spicy Detective magazine. It continued there, one of the most popular recurring characters. In January 1942, publisher Culture Publications spun it off into its own magazine. There were 59 issues of the series, until the final issue in October 1950. Dan Turner - Hollywood Detective returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
