An intelligent, beautiful women with a sexy French accent enters your life… sounds like the start of a fairy tale, but when the sentence continues…and she loves reading Doc Savage as much as you do… you start looking around for Candid Camera. That really happened to me, and she was kind enough to give me a list of the Doc novels published in French and their original titles. (PS: She also married me. So it was a fairy tale…)
Doc Savage fans are a particular lot.
Some have read the novels in the order they were published by Bantam. Some insist a better method is to read them in the order they were originally published. The latest “best order” is to read the novels in the order they were “submitted to Street and Smith.” Guess who has that order for you?
