“AMBLER, Dail” – [WILLIAMS, Betty Mabel Lilian, 1919-1974] : THE LADY SAYS WHEN : A DANNY SPADE STORY.
London : Scion, (1952). First edition. Among the most glamorous, unexpected and toughest of the stable of pulp-fiction writers who wrote for Scion was Betty Williams, also known by her married name of Betty Uelmen, who under her “Dail Ambler” and “Danny Spade” personas, became one of the most successful of all of the British pulp-writers. With some experience of Hollywood, she later found some notoriety for the storyline and screenplay of perhaps the most interesting of the British teen rebellion, beatnik and coffee-bar movies, released in 1960 as “Beat Girl” in the UK and “Wild for Kicks” in the USA, and starring Adam Faith, David Farrar, Shirley Anne Field, Gillian Hills, Christopher Lee, Peter McEnery, Oliver Reed, etc.

London : Hamilton & Co. (Stafford), . First edition. Marguerite de Manell comes of age: she owns a great historic castle, but can’t afford to – she is living in a poky bed-sit and working as a shorthand typist.
