Yep, and in the new book STRANGE SISTERS: THE ART OF LESBIAN PULP FICTION, by Jaye Zimet, which features a couple of hundred mostly cheesy cover shots of lesbloitation paperbacks, novels by crime writers Lawrence Block, Mike Avallone and Donald Westlake, as well as sci-fi/fantasy types Robert Silverberg and Marion Zimmer Bradley, are also featured. They were all published under pseudonyms, of course.
