Borden, Steve. Steve Borden was created by Bernard Dougall and appeared in I Don’t Scare Easy (1941) and The Singing Corpse (1943).

Steve Borden is a Bellem. He is a New York City publicity agent who is tired of the job: “You get fed up touting beefy sopranos and dollfaced tenors and inflated get sick of grubbing around after radio get tired of croaking falsetto praises of mediocre talent; and when you find someone with genuine ability...they break into a rash of self-importance.” However, Fortuna’s wheel spins Borden into murder cases involving his clients, and he is forced to solve them for his own health and career and those of his clients.
