"And for that matter, what other long-running series come to mind?
Well there are the obvious ones:
John D. MacDonald wrote, what? 25 Travis McGee novels?
Parker's Spenser series must be close to the big "four-oh" by now.
And Ross MacDonald's Lew Archer series ran twenty-one (I think) books over
And that seems right to me. After all, MacDonald's books are twice as good
as anything Parker's written (since the guy doesn't even do second drafts
anymore, if in fact he ever did), so it strikes me as fitting that he wrote
half-as many series books.
