Small House of Everything

The Carter Brown mystery books are quick blasts of strangeness.  I would read four or five in a day when I was in college.  The books, written by Australian Alan Yates under the "Carter Brown" pseudonym, were published in paperback by Signet in the U.S. and featured a dizzying array of series heroes, invariably cops or private eyes.  (It's been asserted that Yates wrote all of the books although Robert Silverberg evidently wrote four of them for the Scott Meredith agency; it is not known whether any of Silverberg's CB books were published, so Yates may have actually written all the CB books published.)

It's been a long while since I have read any Carter Brown, but I was happy to find some recordings of a Carter Brown radio show from Australia on Internet Archive.

So here are ten mysteries.  Put a shrimp on the barbie, mate, and enjoy.

  1. The first episode doesn't compel the attention, but not bad, either...thanks for the pointer!
