McDaniel's novels were my favorites in that series, too. He was involved in science-fiction fandom under the name Ted Johnstone, but I've never been clear on whether that was his real name or whether David McDaniel was. He wrote one SF novel in addition to his U.N.C.L.E. books, but nothing else that I'm aware of.
