Harris, Red. Red Harris was created by Gene Van and appeared in nineteen stories in Short Stories from 1937 to 1944, beginning with “The Shadow Hunter” (Short Stories, Oct 10 1937). Red Harris is a bony, freckled, blue-eyed, redheaded sixteen-year-old. He was orphaned as a baby when his prospector father was killed, leaving Red to be adopted by Sheriff Spike Haslam of Ocotillo County. At age sixteen Red wants to prove himself, and does, to his adoptive father’s content, and becomes a teenaged deputy. Red is clever, fast with a gun, and hard for his age.
