EDWARD S. AARONS

1916-1975

Writing as: Edward S. Aarons, Paul Ayres, William Dale, E. J. McDevitt, Richard Powell (1), Edward Ronns


Mr. Aarons began his series about highly skilled but enjoyably imperfect Sam Durrell when he was 40 and continued them until his death. He also wrote under pennames of Paul Ayres and Edward Ronns where his books were detective/crime novels. See Wikipedia for more info, where someone was kind enough to borrow my descriptions of each book, albeit disagreeing with the order.
