Brown, Fredric.: The Screaming Mimi. v1. 29 April 08

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.
________________________________________

The Screaming Mimi is one Fredric Brown's most accomplished books.

It's a masterpiece of the hard-boiled school of detective writing.

Here's a quote from one source:

"Over-the-top and much-beloved thriller starring Bill Sweeney, an ace reporter with a other-worldly drinking problem who gets mixed-up with a naked woman as the latter is trying to avoid becoming the fourth victim of a local serial killer ("The Ripper.") Surprising elements include an insame asylum, a bum named "God," and the little statue that ties everything together."

This is a wonderful novel, full of Brown's quirky characters and off-beat situations.

I hope you enjoy it.

Hi, Zelda_pinwheel:

I love Brown's writing and will add all I can find as they become available.

I do plan to start working on releasing other versions, most notably a Mobi version. In fact, I just downloaded some programs a couple of days ago and have started to play with them.

This will be one of the first of the books I've assembled that I want to make available in different formats.

I hope you enjoy Brown. He's such an offbeat writer; I think that's why I like him so much.

Don

looking forward to reading him. offbeat is always a plus, as far as i'm concerned.

I've always like Brown's amusing and weird science fiction, but I've never read any of his crime detective stuff. I am looking forward to it!

Thanks, Dr.!

Thanks Don! I've never heard of Brown before, and I see that there are a number of his available at Munsey's. So I've downloaded this and Clipjoint.
