Product Overview

William Merriam Rouse (1884-1937) was a prolific freelance author in the heyday of the pulp magazine era. In his brief life he wrote hundreds of short stories, novelettes, serials of adventure, mystery, comedy, detective, romance and horror as well as his favorite colonial and Quebec stories for various pulp and slick magazines. Among Bill Rouse''s manuscripts, unpublished at his death, were many blood and thunder French-Canadian stories. Residing for some time in Quebec, he grew familiar with the lifestyle and earthy language of a bucheron or woodsman chopper. He observed the turn of the century lives of the French Canadians; mansions and dungeons, gallant horses pulling sleds or traineaus on snowy streets, hand to hand battles with knives and guns, often on snowshoes, always with suspense, mystery and usually a beautiful girl, all found in his spellbinding "Tales of Old Qubec." Included are copies of letters he received from the famous editors of the pulp magazines of his day.
