Meet the five Mavericks—Lance Clayton, Doc Grimson, Charlie Parr, Lockjaw Johnson, and Flint Maddox… They were wanted men, those five hard-riding travelers of the still night trails… Mavericks all, they had entered outlawry for five different reasons, drawn irresistibly down the Owlhoot Trail from five different walks of rangeland life.

The Complete Cases of Keyhole Kerry, Volume 1 – $17.96–$29.95

by Frederick C. Davis
introduction by Ed Hulse
Big-city residents on both sides of the law regard him with equal measures of fear and reticence. They know that whatever they’re doing, right or wrong, will sooner or later come to the attention of Guy “Keyhole” Kerry, a wise-cracking, hard-charging journalist who knows all and tells most of it. Kerry’s profession brings him into contact with all kinds of people, and the law of averages guarantees that some of them are better left alone. But Keyhole Kerry will risk anything for a scoop, even if it means becoming embroiled in murder mysteries and making himself a target. This relatively brief series (eight late Thirties entries) was written for Dime Detective by Frederick C. Davis, a tireless pulp scribe who sold more yarns to the magazine—73 in all—than any other contributor save T.T. Flynn. With a half-dozen recurring characters in this one rough-paper periodical, Davis was one of the many talented contributors who made Dime Detective a prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.
