    Thanks, John, for the link! I hadn't realized he had been orienting on his romance novels - too bad, at least for us! He says in the article that they make more money, so it's been good for him. (The official website claims it's a "she"...)

    But, say, reading Hugh Rae and doing research on him makes me want to ask: was the British/Scottish scene in the late sixties and early seventies one of the highlights of the hardboiled crime lit? I mean, there was Ted Lewis, there was Hugh C. Rae/Robert Crawford, there was Derek Raymond, and I'm sure there have been others as well (Martin Russell, perhaps? Reg Gladney, on whom I've asked here before, but no one responded).
