Forgotten (and FREE) Race Williams Stories: "The Wrong Corpse" by Carroll John Daly


Here's the sixth in our ongoing series of the Lost Adventures of Race Williams - tales that have never been reprinted, and ain't likely to be anytime soon.

"The Wrong Corpse," from the February 1949 issue of Thrilling Detective, comes to us courtesy of Kim Anderson, who scanned this baby and sent it in. Thanks, Kim. We're all in your debt.

This time Race goes up against a shyster lawyer, a shifty private detective and the cop he loves to hate - Inspector Nelson - in a case involving two dangerous dames. One of those dames is dead, but Race has a heck of a time figuring out which one.

If you're already a member of Race's Fighting Legion, I'll be emailing you scans of this adventure. If not, shoot me an email at delewis1@hotmail.com, and I'll send you this and the previous five stories, detailed HERE.

For those of you not yet acquainted with our man Race, the sample below offers a good introduction to his character.




Forgotten Books is a revered Friday institution engineered by pattinase.

And coming in October, this new collection from Black Dog Books features five more Race Williams adventures, a Satan Hall story, and three other Daly gems . . .

I have to admit that for all of his quirks, Daly is probably my favorite pulp detective author (followed closely by Hammett). It's always like a mini-Christmas when I see one of these babies in the mailbox! Thanks Dave and thanks Kim for scanning it!

Yep, I'm a member, got it, thanks. These darn things are sort of habit forming, like potato chips. I sure do wish someone would publish all of them in print! Meanwhile, these scans will have to do.

Many more to come. Wish I could say ALL, but there's a whole lot them I don't have.

I'm with Rick: these stories are addicting! And, I too wish some small press would publish them so I could buy some nice volumes.
