Crossover Cover: Thubway Tham and Simon Trapp's Trap


The lisping pickpocket Thubway Tham meets Simon Trapp, a pawnshop owner who runs various criminal scams from his shop’s backroom. Johnston McCulley’s pickpocket Thubway Tham is in the CU, so this crossover brings in Roy W. Hinds’ Simon Trapp, who also appeared in Detective Story Magazine. This story originally appeared in that magazine's June 27, 1925 issue, but I have chosen not to show the cover of that issue here, as its text includes an anti-Japanese slur.

This story is one of over a thousand covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, coming this summer from Meteor House! All three volumes are AUTHORIZED companions to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
