It's taken till now, some sixty years on from when I first started reading this kind of stuff, for me to sort out the convoluted web of pen names and aliases used by the old pulp magazine and paperback authors.It took that most SF of institutions, "The Net" to do it. I shall now be taking great pleasure in tracking down more of their work. Sure, a lot of the Pseudo-Science and general philosophy is well out of date in some respects, but it's still good entertainment. Try some!.
It's a short series of tales about an alcoholic inventor called Galloway Gallagher,who barely eating and existing only on a huge intake of booze manages to run into trouble with the mob, film companies, the law and in one book space aliens-basically a few people commission him to invent something and the lead character often drinks the advance money, gets utterly rat-arsed and combines the required inventions into one single device-usually leading him into all sorts of trouble.
The title comes from his best and funniest creation "Joe"-built while drunk and with no known purpose, the dialogue between them is brilliant.
Excellent book, bringing back many memories

Speaking of getting mixed up on names, the author's last name is Kuttner, with two T's, not one.
