Duane, Dallas. Dallas Duane was created by James P. Olsen and appeared in twenty stories in a variety of pulps from 1937 to 1946, beginning with “Hard Guy” (Spicy Western Stories, Mar. 1937).

Dallas Duane, known as “Hard Guy,” is a trouble-shooter for Atex Oil Company’s land department. “A private dick and trouble-shooter who follows oil booms, I’ve had to cut some crazy capers in my day. But the time I had it out with the ghost, outside a crypt in a graveyard where the dead were potential millionaires—brother, that tops them all.”
