The Man on the Twenty-Fourth Floor
Two bands of criminals gradually eliminate each other, but one band shows much greater ingenuity at the task than the other.

THE ARTS & LETTERS CLUB OF TORONTO NEWS & VIEWS OF CLUB PROGRAMMES & ACTIVITIES OF THE ARTS & LETTERS CLUB OF TORONTO * THE ARTS & LETTERS CLUE UPDATE ON THE PAST Since the Club was formed in 1908 it has always attracted men--and now women--with outstanding skills and abilities in all of the arts disciplines. But because 79 years is a long time, many of us don't know about former members and their accomplishments. So, here's the first in a series about members from the past, this one prepared by David Skene-Melvin: Born at Sydenham, Ontario, Lacey Amy (he eschewed the use of his first name), was a member of the Club (with some slight interruptions), from 1912 until his death in 1962. He was a writer of popular fiction and a syndicated columnist. Amy published 44 detective novels. The first, The blue wolf, appeared in England under his own name in 1913. Following a hiatus during which he was a war correspondent with the Canadian Army in the First World War, he began writing under the pseudonym of 'Luke Allan' in 1921. It was followed by 43 more tales until Blue Pete in the Badlands in 1954. As 'Luke Allan', Amy created two series characters: Gordon Mulhew, and the more famous 'Blue Pete', a reformed cattle rustler who worked as an agent for Canada's North West Mounted Police. 'Blue Pete' made his debut in Blue Pete: half-breed in 1921 and continued thrilling readers in 19 more stories. All of the Luke Allan novels were published in England. They have, however, been imported into Canada. Notwithstanding his current obscurity in the English-language world today, the 'Luke Allan' novels, especially the 'Blue Pete' saga, in translation, are immensely popular in Italy where they are still in print. As 'Luke Allan', Amy made a significant contribution to Canadian popular culture and a Ph.D. thesis in Canadian history has been written at Trent University on the popular image of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Canada, featuring the 'Blue Pete' series. Unfortunately, the Club Library has no examples of Amy's 'Luke Allan' work. Should any member have any thrillers by 'Luke Allan', or should any member visiting Britain in the future and browsing in a second-hand bookshop come across any 'Luke Allan' titles, the Club Library will be most appreciative of a donation.
