Hubby has a book by an "Allan Mansfield" called The Forbidden. In doing a research on this...I found one referrence to Allan Mansfield as being a name that Westlake used...but nothing more. Does anyone one else have this book and or info on the author. I looked even in LOC for info and didn't come up with anything.
Well ... if it is a pseudonym for Westlake, he doesn't own up to it on his own website, where he gives a pretty comprehensive list of books under his name and several others ...
Apparently Mr. Westlake was a very busy gentleman. It looks like there are a number of them.
The Pages of Sin - Alan Marshall
Less Than An Angel - Allan Mansfield
Call Me Sinner - It's not clear whether this was originally written under Mansfield or Marshall. It looks like it might have been Marshall and then revised under Mansfield.
Too Restless, Too Ready - Mansfield (Ghost written by Nedra Westlake - Donald's wife at the time)
Off Limits - Marshall
Man Hungry - ?
I found this: Donald Westlake also wrote some pretty hot pulp fiction under various pseudonyms (Alan Marshall, Alan Marsh, Edwin West, Edwina West)
Ok...probably more than you wanted to know...but....Then I found this:
"The Westlake Twenty-eight"
By Earl Kemp
Donald Westlake says he wrote 28 sleaze paperback books prior to 1962, mostly under the pseudonym of Alan Marshall (Alan Marsh). Following, by year, is a list of published Alan Marshall novels. This list is made in an effort to identify those 28 acknowledged Alan Marshall Donald E. Westlake novels and a few other confirmed writings. This list is limited to Marshall books published prior to 1965 and has every possibility of being wrong as well as missing some titles that should be included.
1959 All My Lovers, Midwood 015 <
1960 All About Annette, Midwood 051 <
1961 Call Me Sinner, Nightstand Book 1581
1962 Apprentice Virgin, Midwood 149 [2nd printing of Backstage Love Midwood 017] <
1963 Circle of Lust by Don Holliday, Bedside Books 1220 +
1964 Bed of Shame, Idle Hour 405 <
In the six-year period bracketed by this article, Donald Westlake wrote 54 books that saw 64 editions. This is an impressive record for any writer of any category of fiction and one that anyone should be justifiably proud of.
That makes (in bold face) a total of 39 titles confirmed by more than one source to have been written by Donald E. Westlake by himself or with help, under two or more bylines.
