Further Information
Harry Carmichael, whose real name was Leopold Horace Ognall born 1908 and died 1979, also used the name Hartley Howard. His output, as is clear, most tremendous and unusually for someone so prolific his work seemed to improve over the years. The main series characters under the Harry Carmichael name are John Piper, an insurance assessor and the crime reporter Quinn who feature in virtually every title. As Hartley Howard the main characters were Glenn Bowman and Philip Scott. The authors style is rooted firmly in the Golden Age of Crime Fiction and traditionally very English. Only a few of his books saw an American release and these have been duly noted, with alternative titles when applicable. Collectors seeking a full set of first editions in original jackets have quite a task ahead of them, that said unlike many authors it is a feasible objective. The early Crime Club titles tend to benefit for attractive jacket.
