Further Information
Ross Macdonald, real name Kenneth Millar, was born in California on 13th December 1915 and passed away in 1983. His books were published as either John, John Ross or Ross dependent on title and also country of publication. For simplicity we have ignored this as the names are obvious and they do not represent any issue points. His main series character was Lew Archer who appeared in most of the books and has become an important figure in the development of modern American crime fiction. In all cases, the US editions precede the UK and alternative titles, were applicable, are noted. There are some uncollected short stories and also four works of non-fiction which are not included in the bibliography
