"Connor Gibbs": fictional detective; Connor Gibbs Henry Gibbs: see Simon Harvester "Carole Ann Gibson": fictional private eye; Carole Ann Gibson Walter B. Gibson (1897-?) Super-prolific author of almost 500 books; American stage magician (confidant of Houdini, Thurston, and Dunninger) best known for creating "The Shadow" for the Smith & Street pulp "The Shadow Magazine" and then writing almost 300 (!) Shadow novels. The Shadow is a cross between Sherlock Holmes and Houdini, a rule-breaking arbiter of his own personal sense of justice (which does not always agree with the state's legal apparatus), who conquers criminals through a combination (new to fiction) of analytical deductive detection and gun-slinging force, while remaining intellectually above the fray, and using magical tricks of invisibility. The Shadow novels are ingenious artifaces of ambiguity, misdirection, strange crimes, costumed super-criminals, red herrings, and structured confusion. Gibson created several parallel but lesser magician/detectives: Norgil, Valdor, Ardini. His 1960s reprint in paperback, through the pioneering efforts of super-editor Samuel H. Post started the great book revival of pulp fiction and radio plays, which brought authors such as H. P. Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard to a new generation of readers, and helped fuel the great comic book boom.

"Godahl, the Infallible": fictional super-criminal in the fiction of Frederick Irving Anderson. An American equivalent of Raffles, the Infallible Godahl is an ultimate thief, never failing in his exploits. His methods depend upon science and his own innate genius, which makes him similar to super-detective Professor Augustus S. F. X. Van Dusen, a.k.a. "The Thinking Machine" -- but on the dar Side of the force. Yet, since he's never been caught, the police do not know he exists, and he alone can appreciate his triumphs. Like Your Humble Webmaster, Godahl was a flamoyant New Yorker. Unlike me, he was also wealthy. Through his crimes, he'd become one of "the fifty little millionaires" of the Pegasus Club. He achieved this with a disdain for all intuition and superstition. He revels in the power of pure intellect, yet fears those (think Daredevil) who have lost one sense and thus made others more powerful. Frederick Irving Anderson, along with Melville Davisson Post and Edgar Allan Poe, may be regarded as one of the triumvirate of greatest American authors of Mystery short stories.

The consummate criminal opponent of James Bond, evil Auric Goldfinger is under five feet tall. His stumpy body is jammed almost directly into his shoulders. His huge, almost perfectly round head is crowned by a bright carrot-red crewcut. His moonshaped face has a fine, high forehead, and a fine, aquiline nose between high cheekbones. "The mouth was thin and dead straight, but beautifully drawn. The the chin and jaws were firm and glinted with health." Goldfinger wears a flesh-colored hearing aid in his left ear. The most arresting facial feature is his pale china-blue eyes "that stared right through a face to the back of the skull." His thin sandy brows were level above those piercing eyes, and fringed with pale lashes. "It is the face of a thinker, perhaps a scientist, who was ruthless, sensual, stoical and tough." Obsessed with the element Gold, Auric Goldfinger devised an apparently flawless plan to rob Fort Knox. He subcontracts the top American criminals. His plan does not involve removing the gold -- but fatally contaminating it with a nuclear bomb, thus driving up the value of his own stash of the precious metal. James Bond stops him, with the assistance of beautiful Bronx women. Goldfinger had the sidekick "Pussy Galore." "Davey Goldman and Bishop Francis X.

Gutman is flabbily fat with bulbous pink cheeks, lips, chin, and neck, and a great soft egg of a belly that was his entire torso. When he walked, all his fat bounced and shook separately, like: "clustered soap bubbles not yet released from the pipe through which they had been blown." His eyes, made to seem small by the surrounding fat, are sleek and dark. His scalp is covered with dark ringlets. His voice is a throaty purr. He dresses foppishly, in a black cutaway coat, black vest, black satin ascot tie held by a pinkish pearl, striped gray trousers, and black patent leather shoes. D.
