1/17/1953 A witness becomes irate

January 17, 1953.  This date saw the publication of The Case of the Irate Witness, which is unique among Erle Stanley Gardner's fifty-plus books about Perry Mason.  It is not a novel, but a collection of four short stories and only one is about the famous defense attorney.  In his pre-Mason days Gardner was a massively prolific author of shorts for the pulp magazines, so this was a chance to connect some of them to his most famous creation.
