Could that $100,000 per year figure (in 1953: "MacDonald, who is 38 and makes about $100,000 a year writing magazine stories, soft-cover novels, mysteries and science fiction.") in earnings possibly be right? That's be the equivalent of about $1 million today.
Not entirely unlikely. Gold Medal paid very well, and he sold to the slicks as well as the remaining pulps at that time.
Gotta check this out. A favorite author of mine.
