Clifton Adams

� THE GOLD MEDAL CORNER, by Bill Crider: CLIFTON ADAMS.: "There are plenty of undiscovered treasures waiting out there in those old Gold Medal Books, some of them by authors you may never have heard of. Clifton Adams is a case in point."

Steve Lewis has reprinted my Gold Medal Corner column on Clifton Adams over at Mystery*File. Check it out.

  2. "Death's Sweet Song" is my personal favorite of all the fine novels that Gold Medal published. No other one hit me harder. You know as things spiral out of control for Joe Hooper that he has no way of avoiding disaster, but you keep pulling for him. The lesson? Leave those trouble "Skirts" alone.

    I've been after a copy of DEATH'S SWEET SONG for some time, but eBay, ABE, et al haven't been any help. I've yet to find a copy for sale; it's a tough one to fine.

    Thanks, Bill! I downloaded a .pdf of it. I struggle with reading fiction electronically, but maybe I'll just read a bit at a time until I (hopefully soon) stumble upon a pbo of it.

    Or maybe I'll just buy a ream of paper and print the thing out...

    Either way -- thanks again.
