Charles Beckman, Jr.

Pulp writer Charles Beckman died just recently, he was born in 1920 and started out in pulps in 1945. Here's a working bibliography I made from the Fictionmags Index lists, Abebooks and other places. It's not complete and there are books that are not by Beckman 100 % sure (such as books as by Alex Carter). There's a book called Pulp Jazz including Beckman's bibliography, but I don't have it. Comments and corrections welcome.
