This is the only in-depth look at the pulp characters created by mystery author Erle Stanley Gardner, the prolific author who would go on to write the series of Perry Mason mysteries. Gardner wrote over 650 pulp short stories and novelettes, writing nearly as many words for the pulps as he did for the novels that he is more well-known for. He began a rapid pace of 100,000 words a month for nearly 20 years, beginning in the mid-1920s. This monograph looks at the breadth of characters written by Gardner for the pulps.

About the Author:

Jeffrey Marks is a long-time mystery fan and freelancer. After numerous mystery author profiles, he chose to chronicle the short but full life of mystery writer Craig Rice. That biography (Who Was That Lady?) encouraged him to write mystery fiction. His works include Atomic Renaissance: Women Mystery Writers of the 1940s/1950s, and a biography of mystery author and critic Anthony Boucher entitled Anthony Boucher. It was nominated for an Agatha and fittingly, won an Anthony. He is the long-time moderator of MurderMustAdvertise, an on-line discussion group dedicated to book marketing and public relations. He is the author of Intent to Sell: Marketing the Genre Novel, the only how-to book for promoting genre fiction. His work has won a number of awards including the Barnes and Noble Prize and he was nominated for a Maxwell award (DWAA), an Edgar (MWA), three Agathas (Malice Domestic), two Macavity awards, and three Anthony awards (Bouchercon). Today, he writes from his home in Cincinnati, which he shares with his spouse and two dogs.
