About Dennis Miller


I’m the director of public relations at Mansfield University.

I spent 20 years collecting books before I got into the vintage paperback world in the late 1980s. I left the collecting world in the late 1990s partly because I didn’t have the time and partly because I had way too many pbs. I also needed time to finish my novel, The Perfect Song.

My goal in this blog is to share information about William Ard, an undeservedly forgotten author of hard boiled detective fiction and westerns.

    Thanks for this informative blog. When I was a kid I got into reading the Buchanan books. My dad read them and I picked em up after he was done with them.

    Buchanan was one of my favorites. I still have some of the old paperbacks and went online to find more info on Jonas Ward and ended up here.

    I’m going to have to look into finding more books by Ard.

    Dennis, I should have gotten with you before. The first William Ard double is ready and should appear on the Ramble House web site and Amazon any day now. Alas, the book is not like the old Ace doubles, where you can read from either end of the book. It’s just a normal trade paperback with two of Ard’s first Timothy Dane stories in it: The Perfect Frame and .38. It’s called PERFECT .38. Please let me know your mailing address and I’ll send you a copy.

    What great news!
    My mailing address is:
    445 Hibbard Road
    Horseheads, NY 14845

    I can wait to see it and hold it. I’ll of course give it a plug on my blog and get in touch with Ard family members.
    I’m very excited about this (as you can tell, I guess)
