the craving

As mentioned in our previous post, rounding out this pile of pulp fiction is another Midwood Fox / Rader pairing The Craving by Dallas Mayo (AKA Gilbert Fox).

Cover by Isaac Paul Rader

These past two entries reminded me it's been a while since we veered off into the more adult sections of the paperback shelves. We'll remedy that next week.

party time

Next up, and the next to last book seen in this stack of paperbacks, is Party Time by Kimbery Kemp, AKA Gilbert Fox.

Cover by Isaac Paul Rader

Interested parties can read more about Fox, Rader and the Midwood imprint here, here and here. (The Fox interview is part of the Midwood article so they link to the same page on the Lynn Monroe Books site; you have to scroll down a bit to get to the q&a portion. By the same token, I'd imagine if you're still reading this you'd probably be interested in reading the whole article.)

Interested parties can also tune in next week for the last book in the stack, another Fox / Rader pairing.

the sometime wife

Continuing our perusal of this pile of pulp fiction, tonight's subject is The Sometime Wife by Carter Brown.

Having only ever been a full time wife I'm not a hundred percent sure what the part time status entails, but I know one thing for sure: both myself & the husband have a hard time resisting a book with a good Robert McGinnis cover.

(PS: Larger versions, as well as covers of books that have found their way on to the blog previously, can be seen here.)

malice in wonderland

Next up in our survey of this stack of paperbacks is Malice In Wonderland (aka The Summer Land Mystery) by Nicholas Blake, aka British Poet Laureate Cecil Day-Lewis; aka father of Oscar winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis.

Cover by Arthur Hawkins Jr.

Interested parties can check out the cover for a Fontana Books edition here. (One that kind of seems like was meant for a book with slightly different subject matter.) And, as always, larger versions, as well as covers of books that have found their way on to the blog previously, can be seen here.
