Bennett’s Beauties: Frank Kane

Part of a month-long celebration of Harry Bennett’s artistic skills.

During the early 1960s, Harry Bennett created a unified series of cover illustrations for several of Frank Kane’s novels featuring New York City private eye Johnny Liddell. I’m the proud owner of a few of these editions, though I haven’t read them all yet.

I looked up Frank Kane in Fantastic Fiction and guess what? That website reckons Frank Kane was Harold Robbins! I am confused but I guess Frank Kane is a fairly common name... anyone with any thoughts on this?

That is weird. Frank Kane was a character the prolific Robbins used in his novel "Never Love a Stranger" ( I can't imagine why FantasticFiction would list Kane as a Robbins pseudonym.
