Born in 1904, few people know the name Lester Dent unless they're collectors and connoisseurs of pulp magazines or working writers. He was the man behind the legendary Doc Savage, Man of Bronze, using the pseudonym Kenneth Robeson. Even though he died in 1959 his works live on in reprints.
To say Lester was prolific is to say that the ocean has some water in it. He was a writing machine, at times cranking out a complete novel in a week. According to some folks, he kept six typewriters on a long table. When he got to a point where he had to think about what would come next, he rolled his ancient wooden office chair over to the next one, read the last paragraph, and started writing the next section of that short story or novel. Overall, 181 Man of Bronze novels were published of which Lester Dent personally wrote 159 over 16 years.
