Authors and Artists

These are only a few of the hundreds of web sites pertaining to the authors and artists listed below. I recommend them as great starting places. Obviously, I couldn't list all the famous pulp and early paperback authors and artists. If your favorite isn't listed and you'd like me to include a link, email me the link.

A few links are for famous pseudonyms. And so, for example, if you click "Ed McBain" and find yourself at a site for "Evan Hunter," there's a good reason. An Author & his or her pseudonym will take you to the same site.

An apology: I simply couldn't find decent links for some very famous authors (except for links to sales of individual books). Harry Sinclair Drago (who also wrote under the name Bliss Lomax) is a good example. This is especially a problem with authors of westerns. I use Wikipedia as a last resort.

I have attempted to avoid sites with pop-ups and ads.

Please report broken links.
