Months ago I wrote about the October 1953 issue of STAR WESTERN in the Saturday Morning Western Pulps series. Well, here's a comment that popped up recently on that post:
I ran across your comment about your unfamiliarity with my husband, who wrote as Charles Beckman, Jr., back in the vintage pulp days. He wrote for a wide variety of magazines in the mystery, detective, suspense, western genres. At 91, he has recently discovered the pulp fans around the country and is now putting together a collection of some of his stories. This is a do-it-yourself project, so the going is slow, but we'll get there. Just thought you might want to know that an old pulp author is still among the living. By the way, his real name is Charles Boeckman.
I'm always happy to hear that anyone who wrote for the pulps is still with us, and when that collection of Charles Beckman Jr. stories is published, I'll certainly pick up a copy and spread the word that it's available.
