The Works of Erle Stanley Gardner

erlestanleygardnerJust Desserts Logo 225During the Nov/Dec 2008 hiatus between meetings of the Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group, we encourage regular attendees to participate as a group in a virtual way. While we may not have an actual meeting scheduled during these two months, we want to use this blog to keep everyone active with their mystery reading and discussions.

We encourage Just Desserts participants to read a book by Erle Stanley Gardner (the creator of Perry Mason, as well as many other novels) at some point in November or December 2008, then come back here and leave a comment about whichever ESG book they read, as a comment post in response to this message.

As a bit of background, here are some links to Erle Stanley Gardner information:

We look forward to seeing your comments here over the course of the next two months!
