He began writing crime fiction while waiting for his patients and in 1921 paid for the publication of his first novel, The Secret of the Sandhills, which was an immediate success.

Over a period of forty years Gask wrote over thirty books as well as contributing short stories to The Mail in Adelaide. Most of his novels described the activities of a detective, Gilbert Larose, in solving crimes. Gasks work was translated into several European languages, serialised in newspapers and broadcast on radio. He also wrote short stories. H. G. Wells, an admirer of Gasks work, corresponded with Gask. Wells regarded The Vengeance of Larose (1939) as Gasks best piece of story-telling...It kept me up till half-past one.

Bertrand Russell, also an admiring reader, called to see Gask at Gasks home in Walkerville, an Adelaide suburb, when he was in Adelaide in August 1950.
