The Life & Work of Fredric BrownIn Martians and Misplaced Clues, the first full-length book devoted to the work and life of Fredric Brown, Jack Seabrook discusses The Fabulous Clipjoint in depth, as well as Martians, Go Home, The Screaming Mimi and all of the other classic Brown novels. He also provides careful analysis of the author's many short stories and poems, tracking his work from the early days as a writer for trade magazines, through the years of the pulp magazines and science fiction digests, up to and including the final years of increasingly respectable slick magazines.
Along with the discussion of the work are details of the author's unusual life, from his early years in Cincinnati through the Depressionn years in Milwaukee, then to a bohemian life living in various towns in the Southwest.
Brown's career as a writer was colorful and varied, and Martians, and Misplaced Clues places him squarely in the middle of the most irresistable and consistently enjoyable writers of his time.
