I almost had an all-Elizabeth month! I’ve officially caught up with the Amelia Peabody books. If I could find my third book in the Moon series I would have read it too. Instead, I’m waiting for it from the library.

The fly leaf of “Cancel These Vows” says that “Sam Webster is the pseudonym of a well-known writer with several previous novels to his credit, including a current fiction hit published by a prominent hard cover publisher.” I’m trying to suss out what current fiction hit was published in 1962… I’d love to crack his pseudonym! He wrote a few pulps. It could be anyone! if Travels with Charley wasn’t nonfiction, I’d make wild assertations that Sam Webster is John Steinbeck. Lucikly, John is off the hoock.
