Er, that's for lovers of private eye fiction, not of the private eyes themselves (although the domain PrivateEyePersonals.com is available!). John Lutz's early Alo Nudger books are coming back in print and e-book formats.
For those of you not familiar with Nudger, he's not really cut out for private eye work. He gobbles antacids under stress. Never much of a fighter, he's not much of a lover, either. He's not even quick with a quip. The one quality he does possess is persistence, the dogged determination to get to the bottom of things.
I've been a fan of the series since I first ran across the short story "Where's Harry Beal?" many years ago, still one of my favorites, so yeah, I'm pretty chuffed about this.
(Many years ago I interviewed John Lutz for my now nearly-decrepit site Bleeker Books.)
