For that matter, William Campbell Gault, as good as he was in crime fiction, may've been even better in sports fiction (I'd give him an edge there), and, after the sports pulps dried up, Gault dominated the YA sports-fiction novel field in the '60s. I wonder how many other HB folk have made significant contributions to pre/young-teen literature. TM

And speaking of Vin Packer writing YA novels, another of the very early Gold Medal writers was A. S. Fleischman, who's huge in the kids' book world under the name Sid Fleischman. He's still writing, and at least one of his kids' books was done as a movie by Disney (Bullwhip Griffin). His son is also a writer.
