Laurence James was a prolific British editor-turned-author whose many western series, including APACHE, HERNE THE HUNTER, CALEB THORN and GUNSLINGER, dominated popular fiction throughout the 1970s and 80s. In addition to his vast western output, James (who became a full-time writer in 1972) also wrote under the names James Axler (the DEATHLANDS and EARTH BLOOD series), James Darke (THE WITCHES), Arthur Frazier (WOLFSHEAD), Neil Langholm (THE VIKINGS), James McPhee (SURVIVAL 2000), Jonathan May (the CONFESSIONS series), Klaus Netzen (THE KILLERS), Mick Norman (ANGELS) and Andrew Quiller (THE EAGLES), plus two stand-alone novels as Richard Haigh. His frequent collaborators included Terry Harknett, John Harvey, Angus Wells and Kenneth Bulmer
