Cohen, Octavus Roy: The Corpse That Walked, v1, 13 March 2008.
This title was released under a Creative Commons License, with additional acknowledgement placed at the end of the book. Book was acquired from Munseys, BUT REFORMATED BY ME TO MY SPECIFICATIONS.
This is a hard-boiled paperback mystery from the 1950s, where bullets plug into flesh and a knuckle-sandwich isn't part of your familiar food group.
Octavus Roy Cohen was born in Charleston, South Carolina in 1891. He graduated from Clemson College in 1911,from Birmingham-Southern College in 1927, and practiced law in South Carolina for two years. Cohen worked at various times for the newspapers Birmingham Ledger, Charleston News and Courier, Bayonne Times (New Jersey), and the Newark Morning Star. He authored more than 50 novels, detective mysteries, and books of short stories, more than 20 motion picture screenplays, and at least one stage drama (Come Seven, 1920). He contributed short stories to The Saturday Evening Post, Colliers, and other magazines. Cohen is best known for his detective fiction and for dozens of comic stories about African Americans. These stories, set in Birmingham, Alabama, featured uncouth characters and exaggerated black dialect. Cohen lived variously in South Carolina, Alabama, New York, and California. He died in Los Angeles in 1959.
I hope you enjoy it.
