Very nice. I haven't seen that one before. Gold Medal certainly stuck in an unusual title every now and again, especially as the numbers got into the 1000s.

The methods of intellectually rigorous discovery on these boards are mind-blowing.

Cool sci-fi book Pat!

 

I have a few by Andre Norton to share. I wouldn't say I have enough like this to qualify as a collection, but that could change.

Prolific author for Y.A. and terrific cover art. Nice duo Pat!

 

I added a couple more Norton books recently.

although not as graily as D-13 or D-15, D-11 has a cool Saunders cover, and the Keene PBO is a fifties crime-fest of the highest order.

Always enjoyed having this book...from what I understand it contains the reprints

of the only three SAM SPADE short stories written, originally published in COLLIER'S

Magazine.
