McKee, Risky. Risky McKee was created by “William A. Todd,” a Street and Smith pseudonym used in this case by Norman W. Hay, and appeared in thirty-eight stories in Wild West Weekly from 1935 to 1942, beginning with “Risky McKee Crosses a Deadline” (Wild West Weekly, Apr. 27, 1935).
New Mexico ranch-owner McKee is known as “Risky” for his love of gambling. He gambles with just about everyone, even when criminals seek him out: “he accepted wild bets against the outlaw fraternity when the game called for action and bullets.” McKee rides a roan and cuts horses on his ranch with the help of his partner, lanky, toothless, baldheaded Sufferin’ Joe. In one story McKee encounters Billy West.
