ABOUT THE AUTHOR
"I grew up reading his work, admired it, was in fact influenced by it in certain small ways." -- Bill Pronzini
Gilbert "Gil" Brewer was an American novel and short story author. He was born November 20, 1922 in Canandaigua, New York.
After leaving the army at the end of World War II, Brewer joined his family who had settled in St. Petersburg, Florida. There he met Verlaine in 1947 and married her soon after. Brewer started by writing serious novels, but soon turned to pulp paperbacks after a sale to Gold Medal Books in 1950. At one point, he had five books on the stands. Unwilling to promote himself, his career took a turn for the worse after a mental breakdown, and a long decline into alcoholism. Brewer died on January 9, 1983.
