Page, Norvell: Gut-Wrenching Crime Tales. v1, 23 Sept 2008
Two wonderful old crime pulp stories from the 1930s.
One is of almost novella length, published in Crime Busters, in 1938; the other - a short story - was published in Strange Detective Stories, in 1934.
Here's a quote from the Wiki about Norvell Page, the author of these two stories:
"[Norvell Page] was an American pulp fiction writer, journalist and editor who later became a government intelligence worker. He is best known as the author of the majority of the adventures of the ruthless vigilante hero The Spider, which he and a handful of other writers wrote under the house name of Grant Stockbridge. He also contributed to other pulp series, including The Shadow and The Phantom..."
I hope you enjoy these two wonderful pulp stories from the 1930s, when danger and evil lurked around every corner, and men in hats walked the streets....
“How to Write the First 3 Paragraphs of YOUR Indie Novel” - by Max Waxwelp1) Always write 3 sentences of exposition; 2) now create some dialogue, preferably no more than 2 sentences; and 3) make certain the dialogue is either inane or humorous. Example:
“Bob, I did not know you wore yellow suspenders,” Sally remarked.
“Gee, Sally, those are not suspenders. I am wearing yellow underwear today,” Bob revealed.
The dialogue above will help produce at least 100 more pages of dialogue.
