His short story "The Beckoning Sea" was included in the anthology Protest: The Beat Generation and the Angry Young Men,[2] and he also wrote a short story, "Adjustments" (1956), which appeared in an Alfred Hitchcock horror anthology.[3] He also wrote Crocodile Blood, a novel about a Native American Seminole girl, and Scapegoats (1970) as well as two cartoon books, Beatville U.S.A. and Borderline Cases, and the Saturday Evening Post short story "The Day the Time Changed".

In 1968, he signed the “Writers and Editors War Tax Protest” pledge, vowing to refuse tax payments in protest against the Vietnam War.[4]
