About the Author
Bill Sullivan was born in Henderson, Kentucky in 1953 and has lived there all his life. A lifelong fan of old TV, he has an 888-issue unbroken run of TV Guide issues (from 1954 through 1971), which he keeps in a storage unit away from his home. Bill taped his first Perry Mason episode in 1978 from WGN. When superstation WTBS picked up the series, he was hooked. Bill is also a big comic book collector. The Case of the Alliterative Attorney is his first book. Ed Robertson has written, co-written or collaborated on several books on film and television, including The Fugitive Recaptured, Maverick: Legend of the West, Thirty Years of The Rockford Files and The Ethics of Star Trek. He also hosts and produces TV Confidential, a syndicated radio talk show about television that caters to listeners age forty-five and up.

It would be quibbling, I guess, to pick on problems with the book, but I do want to point out that the reproduction quality of the pictures is not very good -- they look more like faded newspaper pictures. Also, unfortunately, there are a few factual errors, mostly in the list of a decedent/defendant. In "The Case of the Duplicate Daughter," a family member, not a blackmailing detective, is named as a "decedent" which is decidedly wrong.
One area where I was disappointed was in their writeup of the 1973-74 New Perry Mason series which lasted for only 15 episodes on the network. Only a couple of pages are given to that series, almost dismissing it entirely. It's understandable, in a way, since only "bootleg" copies of the series (I admit to owning an incomplete set) are available and it's very, very doubtful that an official DVD release will ever happen.
Again, this is quibbling, because the entertainment/educational value of the book far outweighs its detriments. If you are a big fan of the series and would like to read more about how some episodes were made and find out some trivia and some necessary facts of the filming of the series/movies, you will benefit greatly from this book.
