Lester Dent Author Biography - Information About the Author
Lester Dent is a pseudonym of Kenneth Robeson who was born in 1905 and died in 1959.
This Lester Dent bibliography is aimed at crime and mystery collectors so we've only included the books that fall into that genre.
The British first editions in dust jacket published by Cassell are rare in dust jacket, very difficult to find, even via specialist book dealers online. The American editions are generally available though, not cheap as this is a very important and collectable author.
