Wow, cool story. He seemed like a great guy. I'd like to know more about the relationshio between him and his wife, whose books I almost enjoy more than his, because they are so dark (though I need to read more of his).

It was only the light of the bright fires of hell which showed us the way. With the reasonable lease-back rates on our souls, the eternal payment schedule seems reasonable, no? ;)

David Cochrane (dcsbooks@peoplepc.com) does an approximately monthly book auction via email. He has a wide range of genre paperbacks available. My feeling is that they are generally a bit overpriced but he certainly has some hard to find titles. 

Just email him to get on the mailing list.

I'd like to point you to a new website I just heard about. Sleaze is not really my thing in paperback collecting but you have to admire the work that has gone into this archive.

"This archive documents the 4300 books published under various company names and imprints from 1959 to 1975. As a group they are informally known as the vintage Greenleaf Classics books."

The Paperback Fanatic has shared a nice little holiday e-zine with a piece called Christmas in Pulpland. It's a look at SF and horror stories with a christmas theme.

As always, if you like please get in touch with Justin at thepaperbackfanatic.com and tell him you saw it here. Get a subscription or an issue for Christmas too!

Hey I just received the September 2013 issue of The Paperback Fanatic in the mail this week.

Justin has put together another fantastic looking issue with the theme of Comics into Paperbacks.

Again, if you have the ability and desire then get yourself a sub to this increasingly quality mag.

Tell him you saw it here on Paperback Book Hunters!

I'm finally starting to get some of my recent paperback finds scanned. Here is an album that should be updated fairly regularly.
