Van Siller Author Biography - Information About the Author
Van Siller is the pen name of Hilda Van Siller, an American author listed in Hubin's crime fiction reference book.
A strange and tricky bibliography to compile. Some books not published in America despite the author being American.
The US first editions are generally obtainable, online at least. The British first editions are generally much rarer, especially collectable copies in jacket as many went to public library.
