Excerpt from Michael Bracken’s interview in The Digest Enthusiast No. 8, June 2018:

TDE: Your secret agent character, Christian Gunn, appeared in Mike Shayne (Aug. 1984) and again in Espionage (Feb. 1985). Was he ever used again?

MB: The fall of the Berlin Wall and the demise of both Espionage and Mike Shayne ended Gunn’s career.
