Harlequin Authors Part XII

W. Stanley Moss and Dan Carew, two authors published by Harlequin Books, have only two things in common - only one Harlequin reprint each and both published in the same month.

Dan Carew is a rarity - an author about which I can find nothing. There are just two Carew books to be found and one is likely a renamed version of the first. Guntown was first published in 1943 (New York: Phoenix Books) and reprinted by Harlequin. A British Carew book with the title Guntown Boss was published in 1958.

W. Stanley Moss (1921 - 1965) is a much more interesting character. His book Ill Met by Moonlight tells the story of the kidnapping of Generalmajor Heinrich Kreipe in Crete in 1944. Moss's fellow kidnapper, Patrick Leigh Fermor (1915 - 2011), who died in June of this year, was a well known writer. Bats With Baby Faces (London: T.V. Boardman, 1951) was the first of his three novels.
