Georges Surdez: The Man Who Invented Russian Roulette

Just a short post today on an article I found about Georges Surdez–my favorite and very prolific author of Foreign Legion pulp fiction.  The article can be read online at a really neat website run by author Christopher Othen.  Link  Mr. Othen has done a great job putting together information about Surdez’s life from various resources.  (There are lots of other great articles on his site as well.)  I hope to find the Collier’s story where Surdez introduces the term “Russian Roulette” sometime and post it when/if I find it.  Enjoy.  BTW the picture of the French Army revolver was from Wiki.  This weapon saw service in the French military for over forty years and “might” have been used in a game of this sort.
