    Reasoner wrote the two trilogies, while Gerson wrote the original series up thru Tennessee. A man named Aaron Fletcher (I think) wrote the rest of the original series (which is why quite a bit of Illinois does not jive with what happened previously). A whole other author wrote the Holts, which is why that series in particular can get rather SJW at times.
