To kick off our nine day extravaganza celebrating slick-tongued reporter Daffy Dill, here's a never-reprinted adventure from the September 7, 1935 issue of Detective Fiction Weekly. Over the next week I'll be re-posting three other Daffy stories (yeah, they're worth reading again), looking at Daffy cover and interior art, and revealing how Daffy dang near made it into the movies.
Then, next Friday, we'll be treated to an in-depth look at the life and times of Daffy Dill by Monte Herridge - an article that originally appeared in the 2013 Pulpfest magazine PEAPSTER. And to wrap things up, on Saturday the 29th we'll have still another "new" Daffy story, coming your way for the first time since 1937.
Yea, verily, it's a good time to be a Daffy Dill fan. Let the merriment commence . . .
