I really liked the non-Durell DARK DESTINY, which Aarons wrote as Edward Ronns (or was Ronns his real name?).

One author I've intended to ask about is one Floyd Mahannah. THE GOLDEN GOOSE is terrific, yet I've never seen this guy mentioned anywhere at all.

I also have fond memories of NEVER FORGET, NEVER FORGIVE by the likewise obscure Clayton Fox, though it's been ages since I read it.

Any info on Mahannah and Fox would be appreciated.
