The other sides of Dorothy B. Hughes.

Mystery fans may know of Dorothy B. Hughes' considerable work as a critic and distinguished career as a novelist and biographer (e.g., In a Lonely Place; Ride the Pink Horse; Edgar nominations for The Expendable Man and a book on Erle Stanley Gardner), but I was intrigued to learn of her poetry (published under her maiden name, Dorothy Belle Flanagan).

I've updated Hughes' Wikipedia page with information on the poems I have found, short stories, and other works. Perhaps most intriguing is her mystery serial, "The Turquoise Ring Murders," that was broadcast on a New Mexico radio station in October 1933.
