      Series: Larry Kent Cleveland (publisher), series - publisher novella novel crime detective

      'He hates crime and he's been known to sport a bow tie! He's LARRY KENT and he first made his debut as a half-hour program on Australian radio in 1950 written by Ron Ingleby. Originally a newshound from the Big Apple, Kent emigrated to Australia and set himself up business as a private eye. Like his counterparts at the time back in the States, Kent was always getting into trouble, but that never prevented him from appreciating the female form. His favourite past-time was, he frequently reminded us, "Watching the blondes go by"' (Thrilling Detective).

      Larry Kent was an Australian pulp crime series which included about 100 novelettes and more than 300 novels based on the Macquarie Network radio series 'I Hate Crime.' Published monthly from April 1954, the novelettes were written by a variety of authors. Many covers and title-pages feature the slogan 'I Hate Crime!'.
