M.E. Chaber Author Biography - Information About the Author
M.E. Chaber is a pseudonym of Kendall Foster Crossen, born 1910 and died in 1981. He also wrote under the names Bennett Barlay, Richard Foster, Christopher Monig and Clay Richards.
There are plenty of paperbacks available online for readers and this list of books is in order for those who wish to read the main series, Milo March, chronologically.
The American first editions are also available in dust jacket for book collectors although the British first editions are rarer, many being ex-public library. I'd argue the artwork on the British editions looks better than the US versions.
