(1916-1975) US author of crime thrillers, before World War Two as by Edwards Ronns, those under his own name beginning with Nightmare (1948). He wrote sf very occasionally, "The Communicators" (June 1958 F&SF) being one of his few sf stories. The first of the forty-volume Sam Durell sequence of thrillers, Assignment to Disaster (1955), has some sf elements, as do Assignment – Moon Girl (1967) and Assignment – Unicorn (1976). [JC]
