She was surrounded by a guy who resembled a shaved ape and looked as though he could pick himself up with one hand.

    My First Shell Scott

    This is the first Shell Scott I've read. I didn't know what to expect. All I knew about Richard Prather was that his work at one time was wildly popular. <p> I enjoyed some of the elements in this early 1950s book that are no longer common in today's world: someone in Scott's office building running a PBX, Scott's early 1940s yellow Cadillac convertible, and starlets that can actually be blackmailed with nude photos. <p> There are also some well-written patches of dialogue that are a joy to read, but unfortunately these are separated by dry stretches of boring plotting. (There are several times that Scott interviews people where absolutely NOTHING is learned, and the story is not advanced one iota. It's like watching someone run in place.) <p> Still, there are some entertaining scenes that may be worth reading the whole book to find. I'm hoping that E-Reads will release more classic genre fiction in the Rocket eBook format.
