More Information
James Hadley Chase was born 1906 in London, England and was not only very prolific but also controversial. His thrillers were noted for their 'racy' and violent content, tame by today's standards but their impact and influence on mainstream bestsellers cannot be overlooked. His first book No Orchids for Miss Blandish sold millions of copies and caused such a furore that it prompted George Orwell to write an essay denouncing the sickness and depravity of the book. James Hadley Chase wrote furiously after this, notwithstanding a break during the war period when he served with the Royal Air Force, in total writing over eighty books and becoming one of the country's best selling authors. Collectors and readers of James Hadley Chase should note that some books were reissued under different titles by Panther Paperbacks. The early titles in jacket are scarce and sought after by collectors, some of the later titles can also be stubbornly difficult to locate in nice condition.
