Upton Sinclair wrote half-dime novels under two pseudonyms, Fitch and Garrison. He used Ensign Clark Fitch for the Clif Faraday stories (also known as the Annapolis series) written in 1897-98 under three different series titles: Army and Navy Weekly, Half Holiday and True Blue. This character also appeared in novelettes for the Columbia Library series, parts of which were republished with various changes in at least seven other series including David McKay's "The Boys' Own Library." This title is part of the McKay series. There were three publishers for the Fitch titles: Street & Smith, Federal Book Co (a subsidiary of Street & Smith) and David McKay. There were five books in the Fitch/Annapolis series, all published in 1903. Very Scarce. (Sources: Gottesman. Upton Sinclair An Annotated Checklist; U. of S. Florida.
