"A Study of Series Characters in the Early Pulp Magazines," by Robert Sampson. Bowling Green University Popular Press, Bowling Green, OH. No publication date listed. Softcover. 307 pages.

Some B&W cover illustrations. These are the characters most pulp fans identify with. The Continental Op, Race Williams, Hercule Poirot, Captain MacBride, and others so numerous that it's easy to spot more omissions than those that are mentioned. If they're lucky enough to be included, they are well covered.
