    I don't remember his science fiction being set there either. I thought an obituary posted here stated  something like that.I think most of the Starks were set in undisclosed American  locations.   One was set on a boat in the southwest. Its immediate Grofield  sequel, THE DAMSEL, is set in Mexico.
      I would say any Westiake work is worth reading If I still had my copy of GANGWAY, I'd send it to you.

    That would've been a very uninformed assertion... the TRUST ME ON THIS/WEEKLY GALAXY sequence alone would've given the lie. I think I've heard of GANGWAY, but that does sound like one I should seek out sooner.
