RARA-AVIS: Still on G.H. Otis

I seem to have been wrong about Otis Gaylord/G.H. Otis having written sex paperbacks, since I don't find any evidence of that now. It's possible though, since everyone wrote sex paperbacks in the late fifties/early sixties. And there's a gap in Gaylord's bibliography: he wrote the Lion pb's in 1953 and published a book only after six years. He must've had some other line of work or then he wrote true crime for men's mags.

Gaylord's Westerns as by Peter Dawson were published 1959-1968. There's eight of them (i.e. "The Savages", 1959, "The Texas Slicks", 1961, "Showdown", 1964). One of the titles is "Bloody Gold" (1963) which I've read. The story was noirish, since almost everyone was killed at the end having pursued the cargo of gold throughout the book. Maybe I should read this in English and not in translation. Perhaps some of our Western readers (James R., Bill C.?) could say something about them.
