Ellis Parker Butler (1869-1937) was an American author who specialized in writing for the magazines of his day. Working from his home in Flushing (Queens) New York, Butler was-by every measure and by many times-among the most published authors of the pulp fiction era. His career spanned more than forty years and his stories, poems and articles were published in more than 225 magazines. His work appeared alongside that of his contemporaries including Mark Twain, Sax Rohmer, James B. Hendryx, Berton Braley, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Don Marquis, Will Rogers and Edgar Rice Burroughs. "Philo Gubb, Correspondence-School Detective" is a loosely structured humorous novel poking gentle fun at Philo Vance and other literary detectives of the day.
