I F DESMOND CORY were alive today, what would he be doing? Where did Desmond Cory get the inspiration for the Johnny Fedora novels, and what more do we know about him? Why did he choose Desmond Cory as his nom de plume? Who were his seminal influences? What was he like as a person? We welcome your questions.

Desmond Cory would be celebrating his 89th birthday (and 61st wedding anniversary), more likely than not typing industriously at the keyboard, puffing away more than just occasionally on his favourite brand of cigarettes, nonchalantly stroking a sideburn with the middle finger of his left hand, completely impervious to the world around him, lost in silent meditation and creative thought, weaving his magic on his latest novel.
