    Aren't the Perry Masons in print? I would swear I've seen them in bookstores recently. One Gardner that should stay in print forever is the collection of Ed Jenkins pulp stories. It's great fun. And the Cool and Lam novels are good, too. Kudos to Hardcase Crime for reprinting one of the best ones. Over the years I have collected maybe two thirds of Cool & Lam. There's something very attractive about this duo, something very Norbert Davis.
