all over but the shooting

This week we continue working our way towards the end of this stack of pulp fiction with All Over But The Shooting by Richard Powell; number #2 in the series of Arab and Andy Blake mysteries?

(I wasn't a hundred percent clear on that but it is the second entry in the list of novels on his Wikipedia page. Either way, after I read it, it will be my first Arab and Andy Blake Mystery.)



I can't quite make out the signature so I'm also not sure who was responsible for this cover art but, from what I've learned, one or more of the following artists - Sol Immerman, Lawrence Hoffman, Robert Holly - were responsible for the first 105 Popular Library parerback covers, and at #92 this would qualify.

(PS: Larger versions, as well as covers of books that have found their way on to the blog previously, can be seen in the Pulp Fiction Project set in my Flickr photostream, here.)

she faded into air

This week we continue working our way through this stack of pulp fiction with another random sampling, She Faded Into Air by Ethel Lina White.



I wasn't able to find any info on the cover artist (if someone passes the info. to me elsewhere I'll add it in here) but it reminds me a bit of the first random sampling posted from the previously linked pile, The Case Is Closed.

death turns the tables

This week the Pulp Fiction Project turns the tables on John Dickson Carr's Death Turns The Tables.



I assume, to paraphrase Ralph Wiggum, the cat and mouse theme featured in the front cover illustration represents obviousness; I have no clue what the curious pose of the tiger might represent.

(Aside from... uh... the obvious. Which makes the illustration even more curious.)

As always, larger versions, as well as covers of books that have found their way on to the blog previously, can be seen in the Pulp Fiction Project set in my Flickr photostream, here.
