Meet “Lora Lorne,” the love advice columnist for the Recorder newspaper… in actuality, gruff reporter Bill Brent. Written by Frederick C. Davis, Brent stumbled through 16 stories published between 1941 and 1946 in the pages of Dime Detective, the prestigious crime pulp second only to the legendary Black Mask in its impact on the genre.

- “Please Pass the Poison”
- “Let the Skeletons Rattle”
- “Killer, Stay Away From My Door!”
- “You Slay Me, Baby”
