How about Lionel Fanthorpe, if one took everything into account under every
possible name?  At one point in the early sixties he was producing a novel
a week for twenty-five quid per book for Badger Books, and if he kept one
copy of each...

*Who's Hugh* lists a mere twenty-eight pseudonyms for him, but I'm sure
there are more if he could remember them!  His entry in *The Encyclopedia
of Science Fiction* has a list of books under different names running to
about forty-eight column centimetres (or nineteen column inches in old
money) of smallish print, and that isn't one book per line.
