Re Ted's comments below:

"Later my friend Terry Carr had a Very Bad experience
working with Avallone at Ace Books as his editor. I believe
he'd been contracted to write the "Girl From UNCLE" series.
When Terry (then new at Ace) told me who was doing the first
book, I told him about my F&SF experience with Avallone.
Later, Terry told me he had to virtually rewrite the book
Avallone turned in, it was so bad."

Avo did *The MAN from U.N.C.L.E.* for Ace. He only did the
first. *The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.* books, of which he did at
least two, were done for Signet. - Jim Doherty
