Carter Brown (1923-1985) - Pseudonym for Allan Geoffrey Yates, who also wrote as Caroline Farr, Tom Conway and Paul Valdez

 

Australian paperback writer Alan G. Yates poured from his typewriter between 1953-68 under the name Carter Brown about 150 crime stories, with sales in the tens, perhaps hundreds of millions of copies. His last books appeared in the early 1980's. All the stories were set in the Unites States, but Carter Brown series never became there so well-known as in Europe. Yates's novels had light atmosphere and his heroes could deliver more wise-guy remarks than Robert B. Parker's famous private detective Spencer.

"Do you go to the movies often, Lieutenant?" she asked politely.
"Once," I said, "to get in out of the rain. A thing called Birth of a Nation. I figured it was about sex, but I got gypped."

(from The Dame, 1959)

Carter Brown was born Alan Geoffrey Yates in London and educated at schools in Essex. From 1942 to 1946, he served in the Royal Navy as a lieutenant. After the war, he worked as a sound recordist at Gaumont-British Films for two years and moved to Australia in 1948. In the same year, he became an Australian citizen. Before devoting himself entirely to writing from 1953, Yates was a salesman in Sydney and a public relations staff member at Quatas Empire Airways. His early books were intended only for Australian audience. While at Quantas, he wrote mysteries for Horwitz's Scientific Thriller series.

When Carter Brown series was picked up by Signet, he found readers also in the United States. There his book covers were often illustrated by Barye Phillips and Robert McGinnis. In France, Gallimard began to publish Carter Brown's works from 1959 in Série Noire, which introduced to French readers such writers as James Hadley Chase, Peter Cheyney, Horace McCoy, Jonathan Latimer, Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, and James M. Cain. Yates published in 1958 also a novel under his own name, The Cold Dark Hours, and in 1966 appeared the first novels written as Caroline Farr. His major work in science fiction was Coriolanus, the Chariot! (1978), a story about illusions, paranoia, and a toxic game. – Yates lived in the fashionable Sydney suburb of St Ives and worked from home. He was married with Denise Sinclair Mackellar; they had one daughter and three sons. Yates died on May 5, 1985.

In the beginning of his career, Yates penned crime, horror stories, and westerns under the name of Tex Conrad. For the magazine Thrills Incorporated he cowrote around 1950 some tales with G.C. Bleek. When he was asked to write a mystery series as "Peter Carter Brown", Yates put his name on a thirty-year contract. According to this paper, he was required to produce two novelettes and one full-length novel a month for Horwitz Publications, one of Sydney's leading paperback houses. The first was The Lady Is Murderer , which appeared in September 1951. Soon Yates produced a flood of crime fiction: in 1953 Venus Unarmed, The Mermaid Murmurs Murder, Chased, The Frame is Beautiful, Fraulein Is Feline, Wreath for Rebecca, The Black Widow Weeps, and The Penthouse Passout.

Yates was able to write 40,000 words overnight. Occasionally he used Dexedrine to stay awake during a 48-hour continuous writing. In the late 1950s, Yates' inability to meet the deadlines began to worry Stanley Horwitz. Also Yates himself grew increasingly frustrated with Signet's standardised formula and changes made by oversee editors. While he was negotiating with Signet in 1958 in the United States, allegedly the Horwitz editor C.J. McKenzie was commissioned to write "half a dozen" Carter Brown books under his editorship. A new contract, which halved Yates's workload, was made in 1961.

Like the British writers Peter Cheyney and James Hadley Chase, Yates set his stories in the United States, but he had acquited most of his knowledge of America from books and films. European readers enjoyed his hard-boiled style and local coloring to the full, without any doubts, and American readers did not pay much attention to his "sometimes tin-eared version of U.S. speech patterns and slang" (Lee Server in Encyclopedia of Pulp Fiction Writers, 2002). However, Signet's co-founder Kurt Enoch was satisfied with Carter Brown novels: "Pace, plot, style are good," he said of The Corpse (1958), an Al Wheeler novel. For the American audience, the manuscripts were edited.

Sometimes Yates played with the titles of his books, which referred to other works. The Loving and the Dead (1959) was a modification of Norman Mailer's The Naked and the Dead (1948), Murder is My Mistress (1954) was not far from Raymond Chandler's Trouble Is My Business (1950), and No Halo for Hedy (1956) echoed James Hadley Chase's No Orchids for Miss Blandish (1939).

The Brown books were fast paced, they had humor and action, and several corpses, although not much violence. Women are gorgeous, and the story is usually set among the rich and glamorous. The plots have turns that are not very believable. In one mystery a night club is used as a distribution center for drugs. The stripper hides heroin into her G-string and swaps it during her performance for a buyer's tie, in which the payoff is sewn into the lining. Yates knew more about literature than his average readers and his specialty was to refer to famous films, novels or works of art. In The Dame  (1959) he quoted John Keats and then twisted the lines in ironic context as the story continued.

Up to the 1970s, the sex scenes were comparatively mild, but then they began to develop into more explicit direction. The change did not please all readers. Last Carter Brown novels appeared in the early 1980s. Usually the novels were ignored by the critics, but the mystery writer Anthony Boucher (1911-1968) reviewed them in his columns, which were published in the Sunday New York Times Book Review. Despite Carter Brown's popularity, the novels have inspired only a few film or stage adaptations. In 1961, Yates met in New York Murray Burnett, the co-author of Casablanca, who was interested in the performance rights of Zelda (1961), set in the home of Zelda Roxanne, the "Hollywood's goddess of love". Curtains for a Chorine  (1955) was made into a comedy film by Maurice Labro in 1963 under the title Blague dans le coin, starring Fernandel, Perrette Pradier and Eliane D'Almeida. And one book inspired in the 1980s a stage musical, called The Stripper, staged by the Sydney Theatre Company.

A typical Carter Brown story did not take itself too seriously – it was a mixture of sex, action, and humor. Yates's female hero was the curvaceous private detective Mavis Seidlitz, whose feminine weapons are more prominent than her mental capacities. Mavis works with Johnny Rio, who believes that thinking is his department and do not give her difficult cases. Rio appears on the scene when Mavis is in trouble. In Good Morning, Mavis (1957?) she travels to New Orleans, where she is kissed several times during Mardi Grass festival and proposed once. Her client is killed and becomes a zombie – or so Mavis believes. She is kidnapped by a monk and a jester and then saved by an undercover detective from the district attorney's office.

Mavis works In The Bump and Grind Murders (1964) as a stripper to catch a killer. She plays a bodyguard to a frightened 'exotic dancer' and reveals her knowledge of Russian literature: "... he was just like one of the characters in that book the college boy I dated a few times used to read to me: it was written by some Russian who had enough sense to write it in English so we could read it, and it was called The Brother Caramba's Off! I guess if he could write it in English, I couldn't object to him using Spanish in the title." Other Mavis stories include Honey, Here's Your Hearse (1955), A Bullet for My Baby (1955), and Lament for a Lousy Lover  (1960). Yates's best known hero was Al Wheeler, a homicide lieutenant from the fictional Pine Country, California. Wheeler made his first appearance in The Wench Is Wicked (1955). In Walk Softly, Witch (1959) Wheeler investigates an insurance fraud, meets voluptuous secretaries and widows, and takes more than a few drinks before he shoots the criminal who has just shot his deceitful female accomplice. Larry Baker, a Hollywood screenwriter, and his drunk partner Boris Slivka, solved crackpot crimes. Rick Holmas was a Hollywood PI, and Randy Roberts a San Francisco lawyer.

Teosten kustantajana oli Valpas-mainos, muutaman myös kustansi Viihdeviikarit. Hiisivaaran lisäksi suomentajina olivat mm. Viljo Ensio Kukkonen, Hannes Hunttila, Terttu Hagström, Sirkka Tuominen ja Erkki Erkkilä. Kirjat ilmestyivät halpoina pokkareina ja niitä levitettiin kioskien kautta. Yleensä Carter Brownien sivumäärä oli noin puolitoista sataa, kannessa oli vetonaulana vähäpukeinen nainen ja teksti "Maailman eniten myyty!" Vaikka Carter Browneja löytyy vielä helposti antikvariaattien hyllyistä yhden euron hintaan, niitä myös on ryhdytty keräilemään, ja sen mukana hintojen voidaan odottaa nousevan.
