One wonders if "de Mexico" was as legion as "Alexander Blade"...The pot trade made child-sex-slave-racketeers turn away in disgust...
(Though, of course, we are to gather they're the same people of sorts.)
I think Bragg wrote only three or four books as de Mexico. Not anywhere near the Blade legions.
I find a pub data of 1951; is that right? "Reefer Madness" sort of beat this to the punch, so to speak. Although if this is as (unintentionally) funny as RM. it's be worth a read.
1951 is correct. There were lots of reefer books in the '50s.
I have the N.R. de Mexico books in the Ramble House reprint edition, but I've never read any of them.
I sent this to my girlfriend and she laughed herself silly over it... or maybe it was the effects of whatever she as smoking at the time.
At least two other writers, including Larry Shaw, apparently used the name, though perhaps only on shorter work.
