CRAWFORD is a Texas writer who began writing at the age
of nine, over 40 years ago. As a pre-teen he was crazy about the works
of Ian Fleming, ERB, REH and Lester Dent. Once a teenager he graduated
to Mickey Spillane, Ross Macdonald, John D. MacDonald, Richard Stark
and Raymond Chandler. Later still he discovered John Norman, Alan Burt
Akers, DashielHammett, Gene Wolfe and Michael Connelly, the latter
probably the best storyteller of those mentioned.
"Except for Dent, I still go back and re-read all these authors to
this day. Even though I know where the stories are going they still
thrill me, pulpsters all!
"Mr. Crawford's work has been rejected by Playboy, Esquire, and Cosmopolitan. His biggest claim to fame is pestering William F. Nolan so much to revive his private detective hero Bart Challus, that Mr. Nolan did and sent him the only carbon copy. Darryl Crawford was featured as Bart Challus' last client, an honor that humbles him to this day."
