I was a bit staggered to read that he actually 'wrote' in a fashion that owed much to Henry Ford. He had a group of assistants. There would be a number of books underway at any one time. Creasey would write bit and pieces intended for each novel, and the assistants' job was to pick and choose among pages he wrote, fitting them together like jigsaw puzzles. Once coherence was achieved, the book was ready for a gander by the writer, Creasey himself, though in the coded language of publishing he would have been deemed an author rather than a writer, a way of indicating that because someone's name was on the cover, that didn't necessarily mean that he or she wrote the book, or not in the conventional sense.
And thus, the quality went up and down like a yo-yo. I recall many, many years ago quite enjoying the best of the Gideon series, written when he started out, but lawdy, there was also such a lot of sheer dross. Moira, Philip, as always I'm grateful for your comments. Creasey was a remarkable character, and I'd love to see a biography published. Post a Comment.
J.J. Marric (John Creasey) Close Up
Monday, 19 January Gideon's Day - film review. Marric, which was one of John Creasey's many pseudonyms. As a small boy, I watched episodes of the TV series based on the character, George Gideon, which starred John Gregson Gideon's Way , and when the film popped up on the schedules, I thought it was high time I caught up with it..
Creasey wrote hundreds of books, but some people think that the Gideon series included much of his best work. The film has a lot going for it.
