Gibson, Glen. Glen Gibson was created by John Bentley (Richard Herriwell, Dick Marlow) and appeared in five novels from 1945 to 1949, beginning with Bullets Make Holes.

Glen Gibson was one of the New York’s most successful lawyers and probably the least conventional. He was a confirmed air addict and took an air bath while shaving, each morning, clad only in a pair of gaily coloured banjo-seat underpants. Despite a great deal of deskwork, his skin stayed healthy and wind-tanned between half-yearly trips to Florida. He stood seventy-two inches in his bare feet, weighed a hundred and seventy pounds and had the natural build of an athlete.

He is served by the Chinese stereotype Harry Lee Sung, is brisk and cheerful, and uses judo in hand-to-hand combat.
