Whether your know his works as authored by A. A. Fair, Kyle Coming, Charles M. Green, Carleton Kendrake, Charles J. Kenny, Les Tillray or Robert Parr, I’m sure you’ll agree that Erle Stanley Gardner was one of the most prolific writers.
There are many of us who know him for his creation of a favorite legal drama series, “Perry Mason,” but few know that because Mr. Gardner was reluctant to allow his most popular character to be transformed into a television soap opera, officials a major network decided they could do it on their own and created “The Edge of Night,” with a thinly-veiled main character much like Perry Mason – running for the next 28 years. Imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery!
