Wow--Thanks, Mark! (Some of the early Midwood Block titles also precede Mona.) Rob

Thanks Rob.

I looked over my notes from my last trip to hte LoC several years ago

and Crowley and Evans are identified as Block pseudonyms (as opposed to

psuedonyms without the true author being specified, which is far more

comon in the catalog):

I Sell Love by Liz Crowley (A Monarch Human Behavior Book), 11/7/60

Strange are the Ways of Love by Lesley Evans, Crest, 11/16/59

As a curious note, that places both (and only these two) before Mona

(2/28/61), Block's official "first book."
