Trivia:

When writing short stories he was so prolific that he would sometimes have two or even three stories in the same magazine issue. To disguise this, at most one was published under his own name. His most frequent pseudonym was Anson McDonald (his middle name with his then wife Leslyn's maiden name). He was also published as Lyle Monroe, John Riverside, Caleb Saunders, and Simon York.
