5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By OTR Researcher on February 4, 2006
Format: Paperback
As with many Radio series, Casey, Crime Photographer had its origins in pulp fiction. A new book by J. Randolph Cox and David S. Siegel covers the Casey character from the first stories in a pulp magazine, to novels and comic books, plays, motion pictures, Radio and television. The authors have uncovered much previously unpublished information and have presented it in a very readable format.

The Casey character was created by award-winning mystery writer George Harmon Coxe and premiered in a short story in a popular pulp magazine of the 1930s, Black Mask. Included in Flashgun Casey are that original short story, "Return Engagement," and a biography of Casey's creator, who was twice President of the Mystery Writers of America (MWA) and recipient of the MWA Grand Master Award in recognition of his lifetime contribution to the mystery genre.

The non-Radio manifestations of Casey are thoroughly documented in the book. Background information is provided on the various literary, theatrical, motion picture and video productions involving the crime-fighting photographer. The authors trace how the Casey character and supporting cast changed with the demands of the different media. They also provide synopses of all 21 short stories and novelettes, six novels, four comic books, two films and a play. Additionally, there is a broadcast log for the 1945 and 1951-1952 television series.

The sections on the Radio series cover approximately 40 percent of the book. There are photographs and an illustration of all main cast and crew members.

I am an OTR (old time radio) fan and appreciate works such this one. The only drawback is that it does not have an index which makes searching for answers to specific questions somewhat cumbersome.
