Lou Cameron (June 20, 1924 – November 25, 2010) was an American novelist [1] and a comic book creator. He was born in San Francisco in 1924 to Lou Cameron Sr. and Ruth Marvin Cameron, a vaudeville comedian and his vocalist wife. Cameron served in Europe during World War II in the U.S. Army's 2nd Armored Division ("Hell On Wheels"). Before becoming a writer, Cameron illustrated comics such as Classics Illustrated and miscellaneous horror comics. One of his first written stories, "The Last G.I.," is a science Other fiction story about American soldiers struggling to survive in a nuclear battlefield. It appeared in Real War (volume 2 number 2, October 1958).

The film to book adaptations he wrote include None But the Brave starring Frank Sinatra, California Split, Sky Riders starring James Coburn, and the award winning CBS miniseries How the West Was Won, collaborating with Louis L'amour.

He created the character Longarm under the housename "Tabor Evans" and wrote at least 52 of the more-than-400 books in the series. He wrote the Renegade series as "Ramsay Thorne", and the Stringer series under his own name. He also wrote at least one Easy Company novel as "John Wesley Howard", and one of the novelisations of the Kung Fu television series as "Howard Lee". In 2004, his novel The Subway Stalker was adapted to film by French director Jean-Pierre Mocky as Le Furet.

He has received awards such as the Golden Spur for his Western writings. He wrote an estimated 300 novels. The lists below are compiled from copyright records at the Library of Congress.
