Ronald Johnston Author Biography - Information About the Author
Ronald Johnston was born in 1926, he's a Hubin listed crime and mystery author whose main series character is James Bruce.
There seems to be quite a few incorrect dates in Hubin for this author, we've corrected as and when required.
A tricky bibliogrpahy as you'll note the odd change in precedence between Brish and American publications, some books appear not to have been published in America.
Note the one book published under a pen name.
First edition books are collected, especially by those keen on the nautical genre. They are very reasonably priced and a full set of first edition books in dust jacket need not break the bank.
They also benefit, for the most part, from attractive dust jacket artwork.
