Terry, like most of us would love to see the Western Genre back where it belongs … on top. He wholeheartedly supports the idea of the Rope and Wire Short Stories Series which can only strengthen the genre’s appeal to the media.
The Quiet Gun.
Killing Time in Eternity.
Return to Massacre Mesa.
Name on the Bullet.
His original Edge series which consists of sixty one books have stood the test of time, and are well sought after today, #61 being the hardest to find. The last one I ever saw was being auctioned on eBay and went for almost $300. If like me, you have read any of the Edge books you will know what I’m talking about. I think Terry was writing in a style well advanced for his time. And that is why if you read one of his novels today, you’d swear it had only been written yesterday.
Terry Harknett (born 1936) is a British author. He is author of almost 200 books, mostly pulp novels in the western and crime genres. He has written as a ghostwriter for Peter Haining and under an array of pseudonyms, George G. Gilman, Joseph Hedges, William M. James, Charles R. Pike, Thomas H. Stone, Frank Chandler, Jane Harman, Alex Peters, William Pine, William Terry, James Russell and David Ford. Some bibliographies list Adam Hardy as one of Harknett's pseudonyms, in fact a nom de plume of Kenneth Bulmer. This is an error resulting from incorrect copyright information printed in one of the Edge westerns.
He has written a number of series including:
- Steve Wayne (9 books under his own name)
- Crown (3 books under his own name)
- Edge (61 books as George G. Gilman)
