Private Eye No. 1 July 1953

The issue above includes my third contribution to Bare•Bones, an overview and issue synopses of the short-lived crime digest Private Eye, published by John Raymond in 1953. It was a fine crime fiction magazine that included stories by Harold Q. Masur, Will Oursler, Dorothy Dunn, Day Keene, Hunt Collins, Alan E. Nourse, and many others. This edition of B•B also includes co-editor Peter Enfantino’s coverage of the “shudder-pulp” digest Web Terror Stories, so there’s plenty here for digest enthusiasts.

I’ve read all five previous issues of this reboot of Bare•Bones cover-to-cover and have started on this issue. It’s an excellent pop culture treasure trove that I highly recommend. You can order copies from Bud’s Art Books,, and all of the usual outlets for this type of independent gem.
