    About " Fredric Brown "

  • Fredric Brown

    Fredric Brown was an American science fiction and mystery writer He was one of the boldest early writers in genre fiction in his use of narrative experimentation While never in the front rank of popularity in his lifetime, Brown has developed a considerable cult following in the almost half century since he last wrote His works have been periodically reprinted and he has a worldwide fan base, most notably in the U.S and Europe, and especially in France, where there have been several recent movie adaptations of his work He also remains popular in Japan Never financially secure, Brown like many other pulp writers often wrote at a furious pace in order to pay bills This accounts, at least in part, for the uneven quality of his work A newspaperman by profession, Brown was only able to devote 14 years of his life as a full time fiction writer Brown was also a heavy drinker, and this at times doubtless affected his productivity A cultured man and omnivorous reader whose interests ranged far beyond those of most pulp writers, Brown had a lifelong interest in the flute, chess, poker, and the works of Lewis Carroll Brown married twice and was the father of two sons.

  • So much drinking So much How were these characters even able to walk, let alone not be puking their guts out continually They go to someone s house, have three highballs, and one drink since they ll be driving Then got a bar and have a few , but not feel tight at all, they say Cops drink, doctors drink Everyone drinks.Maybe that s why time doesn t seem to matter Dates that start at 2 am Calling people up to ask simple questions at midnight No one ever seems to sleep I know it s not a good idea [...]


  • The allure with the works of Brown is that he weaves complexity with what seems preposterous and improbable So much that the journey to the end of the story takes many turns and distractions making it possible for you to one day pick up the book again and realize that though you slightly remember not much how it ended you can t make heads or tail out of how it arrived there and you are, as a result compelled to read the book again several times This is is what feature grew fans for Brown, At lea [...]
