Leonard R Gribble Author Biography - Further Information
Leonard R Gribble, born 1908, was, as is clearly apparent, a very prolific author. In addition to the books listed in the bibliography above, there are at least as many again of a non-criminous or non-fiction nature. He wrote under several pseudonyms and had numerous series characters. The best known of these is the one under his own name, Superintendent Anthony Slade. Only a few of the books were published in America so we have kept this list to only English 1st editions. We have though included the alternative titles for US editions as and when applicable .
