Further Information
Charles Williams, born 1909 in Texas and died 1975, was never quite regarded as being in the major league of American thriller writers though his work is still appreciated, and collected, today. The publishing history is slightly chaotic, as can be seen. American editions precede their English counterparts, often by a few years. Several books have alternative titles and we have included these where and when applicable. No series character as such, though John Ingram does appear in a couple of the books. The English first editions benefited from some excellent period artwork on the dust jackets, which only increases their collectability today.
