Hi, Dennis, and welcome to Rara-Avis. You probably don't remember it, but years ago you gave me some very good advice about the writing business:
"Everything takes a lot longer than you think it should." Or words to that effect.

It's possible that the first book of yours that I read was one of the Three Investigators novels, but I really feel like it was probably THE SHADOW STRIKES!, which I bought brand-new off the spinner rack in the local drugstore. I read that whole series and thoroughly enjoyed them. I still pull old issues of MSMM off the shelves every now and then and read your Mike Shaynes and Slot-Machine Kelly stories, too.

Speaking of William Arden, I also liked the series you did under that name about a character who specialized in industrial espionage. Very good hardboiled novels, and I think many of the members here would enjoy them. Was the character's name Kane Jackson? I can't get to the books at the moment, but that sounds right.
