  2. You've got the wrong person here. The writer was named "Peirce". He was a friend of Robert Bloch's in Milwaukee, c. 1935-37. Details at:

    1. Thanks, Vestibule,

      I'm listening to the audio right now. It has just begun, but the reading and recording are good. That's not always true with video and audio on the Internet.
