Somewhere I have a list of all the Mike Shayne magazine stories with most
(but not all) of the actual authors identified. This was put together by my friend Tom Johnson, who has a complete run of MSMM. I'll see if I can find it. As for the Shayne novels, everything after _Michael Shayne's 50th Case_ is actually by Robert Terrall. Before that, most of the books are by Davis Dresser, with a few ghosted by Dennis Lynds, Ryerson Johnson, and maybe Helen Kasson. I'll try to dig up some specifics on that, too.
