Gomer Pyle Novel
Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. is a novel by E. Kitzes Knox published in 1965 by Pyramid Books to promote the TV series Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. E. Kitzes Knox is a pseudonym for the two authors, Esther Kitzes and Helen Knox. The novel makes several changes to the show's backstory. Gomer was raised in a small town called Sinking Springs, instead of Mayberry. Sergeant Vince Carter's full name is given as Harold Q. Carter. All of the other characters are original to the novel. When the main characters visit Sinking Springs, they meet a family with similarities to the The Darlings called the Singing Drums.
