October 17, 1936. The issue of Detective Fiction Weekly with this cover date included the first section of Max Brand's Seven Faces, "Nuts About Mutts," by Hugh B. Cave, and "Easy Money in the Big House," by Convict 12627, among other classics, but today we are featuring "Pretty Parker,"a short story written by Theodore Tinsley. You can read it here.
Tinsley wrote two dozen stories about The Shadow for that memorable gentleman's own magazine. He also created Carrie Cashin, one of the first female pulp detectives.
