Rice, Miles Standish. Miles Standish Rice was created by Baynard Kendrick (Cliff Chandler, Duncan Maclain) and appeared in sixteen stories in Black Mask and three novels from 1936 to 1959, beginning with “The Iron Spiders” (Black Mask, June 1936).

Miles Standish Rice is a private detective (sometimes deputy sheriff) who is most notable for his height (6'3"), his great hunger (Rice is as skinny as he is tall), and the occasionally outré nature of his cases, which in his first novel involves voodoo.
