Among his fans (and students of his writing) were the authors Ray Bradbury, Robert A. Heinlein, and Piers Anthony. His other novels include such racy titles as HERE IS MY BODY, TEMPTRESS, RENTED WIFE, ILLICIT, and SAVAGE HONEYMOON. A nice example of pulp fiction so well-written and so eminently readable that it was published in hardcover.
