It's just a quiet night at home for Richard Blakemore a.k.a. the Silencer...
New York City, 1936: It's a rare evening at home for Richard Blakemore, hardworking pulp writer by day and the masked vigilante only known as the Silencer by night. But even though crime never rests, next month's Silencer novel doesn't write itself. And besides, Richard enjoys the chance to spend some time with his fiancée Constance Allen.
Pulp fiction thrives on exaggeration and non-stop action. And as always, the question is how much of the Silencer's adventures are fact and how much is fiction?

This is a short story of 2700 words or approx. 10 print pages in the Silencer series, but may be read as a standalone.

Richard Blakemore (1900 – 1994) was a prolific writer of pulp fiction. Nowadays, he is best remembered for creating the Silencer, a masked vigilante in the vein of the Shadow or the Spider, during the hero pulp boom of the 1930s. But Richard Blakemore also wrote in many other genres, including an early sword and sorcery series about the adventures of a sellsword named Thurvok and his companions.
Richard Blakemore's private life was almost as exciting as his fiction. He was a veteran of World War I and II as well as a skilled sportsman and adventurer who travelled the world during the 1920s. He may also have been the person behind the mask of the real life Silencer who prowled New York City between 1933 and 1942, fighting crime, protecting the innocent and punishing the guilty, though nothing has ever been proven.
Richard Blakemore was married for more than fifty years to Constance Allen Blakemore and the couple had four children.
