Thanks Chet!

While trying to do some research on a possible third author of the Turbo Cowboys books, John Read, I emailed both of the other authors to see if they knew anything about him. Chet Cunningham responded and said, “As far as I know there was no other authors on the series… never heard of John Read… I did only three books in the series that I remember. Maybe a forth, not sure. Long time ago.”

I also emailed Ballantine Books to see if I could get any information on the series that they might be able to give me, but like the first time I emailed them, I have yet to get a response, and probably won’t. I’ll keep harassing them though.

I’m only guessing here, but there’s probably no John Read. I can’t find any information on an author by that name that looks even possible of being an author of the Turbo Cowboys. So unless that’s a pen name too, which I would doubt, then there probably wasn’t a third author and the website I got that info from is most likely wrong. After all, the two other authors we do know about have already claimed all 10 books between them, and I think they would know better than almost anybody. Except for Ballantine, who still hasn’t responded.
