Re: Scalpel and Corruption City. The two are definitely different books. I think the confusion here is that both were originally meant for the screen, and only later published as novels. McCoy sold Scalpel to Hal Wallis in 1951. I believe it was This is Dynamite that became Corruption City, which McCoy orginally wrote for Paramount. Scalpel mutated into Bad For Each Other. Confused? I certainly must have been.

Re: Burnett's noms des plumes: It's Always Four O'Clock, Reandom House, 1956 under the name James Updyke Arrowhead, Gold Medal, 1953, under the name John Monahan.

I didn't know about some of Burnett's book's being purportedly written by Robert Silverberg. Is there any proof of this? Where does this information come from?
