the exhibitionist

Rounding out our month long "after dark" series is The Exhibitionist by Lillian Preston.



Much like last week's post I have no information to offer on either the cover or the author; something that will likely change when we dive back into our "regular" PFP posts next week.

(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.)

bed and board

For the third, but not final, entry in this month's "after dark" series we have the third and final book in this wee stack of dusty flea marketed pulp fiction, Bed And Board by Jonathon Ward.



Sadly, once again I find myself unable to find information on the author (save the "autobiographical" info. on the back) or the person responsible for the fantastic cover art. (I did find a little about Kozy Books here.) But I'll keep working on it.

(PS: Don't worry there's plenty of sleaze paperbacks that haven't been photographed next to GG Allin doll to choose from for next week's finale.)

chains of silk

Next up in our PFP "after dark" series (not surprisingly also the next book in this pile I mentioned last week) is Chains Of Silk by John Balmer.


Cover by Isaac Paul Rader


I wasn't able to find any information on the author but you can read a little more about Rader here.

(PS: A similarly minded piece about Midwood & Rader written by the same author appears in Sin-A-Rama, an excellent book about '60s sleaze paperbacks.)

sin strippers

When deciding what books to feature during this month long look at the "adult" section of our paperback shelves, I figured I should start at the top; meaning the book on the top of the small pile seen in this photo - Sin Strippers by Robert Justin.


Featuring fantastic cover art by Eric Stanton. (One of the most well known illustrators of the sleaze / fetish genre, as well as a personal favorite.)


I have to admit, I haven't read this book but I did read the back cover, which kind of reminds me of a voice over monologue from a Russ Meyer movie he never made.

the pulp fiction project (after dark)

Knowing the previously blogged about pile of pulp fiction was soon to come to an end, a week or two back I went looking through my photostream in order to consult this photo & decide what books to scan in next. At which point I came across this photo, remembered my "after dark" idea and decided it might be fun to briefly veer away from the crime novels and focus the PFP's attention on the portion of our bookshelves that contain novels neither of us plan to read any time soon, or possibly ever, AKA the "adult" section. Cleanse our palette with something a little dirty, if you will.

(Although I should point out, as far as cover art goes, most of these are more suggestive than pornographic, and much closer to a PG 13 than XXX rating at this point, but they are a bit more salacious than our normal fare.)

This sub-project will officially kick off with Friday's post (and probably pop up a few times over the course of the year) but I thought I'd warn you ahead of time. Plus I wanted an excuse to use / share this appropriately themed artwork I whipped up for the sidebar this afternoon in a larger size.


(Seriously, if I could get a job doing this I would never retire!)
