Re: Donald Moffitt wrote as Paul Kenyon
- I've actually read some of Moffitt's straight SF novels, and they were
pretty good. I'd recommend "Crescent in the Sky", about an interstellar
Islamic culture with an odd problem regarding Mecca. The style of his
novels is definitely that of the Baroness series, and does have the same
fondness for gore. Too much so, actually, for the hard SF genre, which
may be why he never got up to the Niven level.
In the little bio blurb at the end he mentions our gal's books, though
not directly: "A former public relations executive, industrial
filmmaker, and ghostwriter, he has been writing fiction on and off for
more than twenty years under an assortment of pen names, including his
own, chiefly espionage novels and adventure stories in international
settings." Dunno if he wrote any pulp besides the B series. He was
apparently born in 1936, so he would have been in his late thirties when
he wrote them.
