CHICAGO, June 9, 2015 — Ankerwycke, the new consumer-oriented imprint of ABA Publishing, is bringing back author Erle Stanley Gardner’s series of books featuring criminal defense lawyer and sleuth Perry Mason.
This month, five paperback releases are planned in the series that stars America's most famous fictional criminal lawyer, Perry Mason. With brief descriptions, they are:
Many of the Perry Mason series titles have not been in print for years. With the reissue of these iconic books, Ankerwycke will introduce an entirely new generation of readers to the investigative brilliance of Perry Mason and the masterful storytelling of Gardner. Each book will sell for $9.99.
The books, which had first editions spanning 40 years starting in 1933, served as the precedent for the television series of the same name broadcast from 1957 to 1966. The series starred Raymond Burr as Perry Mason.
Ankerwycke, launched in December 2014, is the consumer-oriented imprint of the American Bar Association. In 1215, Magna Carta was sealed underneath the ancient Ankerwycke Yew tree, starting the process which led to rule by constitutional law — in effect, giving rights and the law to the people. Today, the ABA's Ankerwycke line of books continues to bring the law to the people. With legal fiction, true crime books, popular legal histories, public policy handbooks and prescriptive guides to current legal and business issues, Ankerwycke is a contemporary and innovative line of books for everyone from a trusted and vested authority.
With nearly 400,000 members, the American Bar Association is one of the largest voluntary professional membership organizations in the world. As the national voice of the legal profession, the ABA works to improve the administration of justice, promotes programs that assist lawyers and judges in their work, accredits law schools, provides continuing legal education, and works to build public understanding around the world of the importance of the rule of law.
