Eustace Cockrell was a pioneer writer who, during television’s “Golden Age” of the 1950s, contributed to many award-winning shows including Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Philco Television Playhouse, and Naked City. He also wrote teleplays for many of the early Western classics including Man Without a Gun and Cheyenne.
Prior to his television career, however, Cockrell was a prolific writer of short stories. Over a 25-year period, beginning in 1932, his works appeared regularly in prominent pulp fiction magazines such as Blue Book and Argosy and in “slicks” like Collier’s, The Saturday Evening Post, and Cosmopolitan.
These stories, 114 unique tales, are now republished by Mission Point Press in a five-volume set, The Collected Works of Eustace Cockrell, edited by Roger Coleman, Cockrell’s son-in-law. Coleman, also a writer, is married to Cockrell’s daughter, Elizabeth.
Included in The Lost Stories is a collection of Eustace Cockrell’s unpublished manuscripts. These never-before-seen tales, though perhaps not as polished as his published works, are more autobiographical, more emotional, and more believable, in part because they have not been shaped by magazine editors to fit the specific needs of their publications. These “lost stories” further reflect Cockrell’s contribution as one of Hollywood’s master storytellers.
