Updated 3 paperback galleries at Flickr!

More fun and trashy old paperbacks have turned up in recent travels over the past few months, so I've added scans of some of them to a few already existing 'cover gallery' sets I have posted at Flickr.

Check 'em out!

(Click on links to open Flickr sets on a new page)

- 2 new titles, 5 new scans added to
Cover Gallery: 1940's Paperback Mysteries - - A couple of cool '40's Dell mysteries, with a crime map and end papers!

- 2 scans added to
Cover Gallery: Paperback Mysteries, etc., - - the 1950's and '60's
('Kill Me In Shimbashi' and 'The Peking Pornographer')

- 42 new images added to
Nostalgia for the Scholastic Book Club, circa '60's & '70's, making the set 3 times larger than it had been...

... now including cover scans and illustrations for 'juvenile lit' titles such as: 'Firestorm',
'The Mystery of The Old Violin', 'Snowbound In Hidden Valley', 'Mystery of The Piper's Ghost', 'Wipeout', 'Goofy Foot', 'A Horse Of Her Own', '100 Pounds of Popcorn' and others.

"Welcome to Baby Island! Plenty of babies for everyone. Come along. I hope you brought your appetite. Forks are over there but you won't be needing them. You'll find our babies are cooked to perfection why... they seem to jump off their bones and into your belly. Plenty of napkins for everyone! Dig in my friends... dig in."

I found your site through Boing Boing, figured I'd take a look around. The cover to Phyllis A. Whitney's "Willow Hill" looked interesting, so I did a look-up on her, turns out she has just passed away Friday, February 8th at the age of 104!
