Christopher Hale Author Biography - Information About the Author
Christopher Hale is a pen name of Frances Moyer Ross Stevens who was born in 1895 nad died in 1948.
American editions precede in all cases and as can be seen from the bibliography above the UK editions were published in an arbitary fashion.
The Boardman books do not appear to be from the harcover Bloodhound series but paperback originals as seen illustrated above.
Most titles are held only by the British Library and not by Oxford etc.
A well regarded author in America and highly sought after by American collectors.
Less interest amongst British collectors, presumably due to the lack of hardback editions in dust jacket.
