Kenneth Robeson was the house name used by Street and Smith Publications as the author of their popular character Doc Savage and later The Avenger Though most Doc Savage stories were written by the author Lester Dent, there were many others who contributed to the series, including William G Bogart Evelyn Coulson Harold A Davis Lawrence Donovan Alan Hathway W Ryerson Johnson Lester Dent is usually considered to be the creator of Doc Savage In the 1990s Philip Jos Farmer wrote a new Doc Savage adventure, but it was published under his own name and not by Robeson Will Murray has since taken up the pseudonym and continued writing Doc Savage books as Robeson All 24 of the original stories featuring The Avenger were written by Paul Ernst, using the Robeson house name In order to encourage sales Kenneth Robeson was credited on the cover of The Avenger magazine as the creator of Doc Savage even though Lester Dent had nothing to do with The Avenger series In the 1970s, when the series was extended with 12 additional novels, Ron Goulart was hired to become Robeson.

    This was a fun trip down memory lane, when the pulps were king and comics just starting out The Avenger and his Justice Inc crew are bent on taking evildoers alive, and Dick Benson, the Avenger, even curses himself when one of his shots is not clean enough to crease a man s skull, but kills him instead The weapons and gear were fantastic, even Science Fiction for their day but oh, what fun it is to read of some of this stuff coming into reality Written in 1940, there are no cell phones, b This was a fun trip down memory lane, when the pulps were king and comics just starting out The Avenger and his Justice Inc crew are bent on taking evildoers alive, and Dick Benson, the Avenger, even curses himself when one of his shots is not clean enough to crease a man s skull, but kills him instead The weapons and gear were fantastic, even Science Fiction for their day but oh, what fun it is to read of some of this stuff coming into reality Written in 1940, there are no cell phones, but there are radios that communicate with one another Remember that it was towards the middle of World War II that Walkie Talkies came out. so a belt radio was pretty darn fantastic for the era Okay, there have to be a number of fights, and they are almost as outrageous as that scene in Kentucky Fried Movie where the martial arts parody of Bruce Lee defeats like two hundred bad guys in a battle only to be beset by another two hundred Our heroes are always outnumbered and only lose fights when such a loss advances the plot There is a neat little mystery hidden in this melodramatic work but it is so easily solved by the team as to really become somewhat boring IN the end, Benson warns the bad guy, as he usually does, that trying to destroy his agents and himself will only end in terrible self destruction And it does, as Benson comes up with a dirty trick trap of his own but Benson doesn t take lives lightly, and even in this case, the bad guy was really warned A fun trip down nostalgia lane, but one I probably won t take again for a good long while Three Crowns was sort of fun, but the corny stuff got in the way of the nostalgia and the joy of the corny, pulpy style

    Very well written book from the 1940 s If you like suspense and great writing, you ll like this book I am not sure which writer wrote the book since Kenneth Robeson is a pen name but I enjoyed it.

    read SOMETIME in 2001

  6. Timothy Boyd says:

    Much like Doc Savage the Avenger fights crime with the help of his aids While the stories aren t as exciting and world ranging as Doc he is still a great pulp character and read Very recommended

    I consider this a lesser novel in the Avenger series, despite the clever denouncement.
