Keith Edgar is another shadowy Pulp figure that we know little about. We do know he wrote a series of Mystery and Northern novels for a Toronto publisher and that his wife (name unknown) was also a writer. The two Northerns he wrote were The Kunwak Treasure (1946) and Arctic Rendezvous (1949). It is likely he was a Canadian. He disappears after 1949.

My own connection with Edgar are the short stories he published in magazines such as Colliers, Adventure and Short Stories. Some of the Northerns include:

“Check Out Flight” (Short Stories, October 25, 1946)
