Crossover Cover: The Raffles Hunt
This issue contains a Raffles story by Barry Perowne (real name Philip Atkey,) "The Raffles Hunt," later reprinted as "Raffles and the Automobile Gang" in the collection Raffles of the Albany. In this tale, Raffles and Bunny Manders encounter Smiler Bunn and his gang. Bunn is a comedic thief-turned-detective appearing in short stories and novels by Perowne’s uncle Bertram Atkey from 1911 to 1940. Bunn is also mentioned in David Vineyard's "The Legacy of Arsene Lupin," which I discussed in a previous post.
