   1st edition, limited to 150 copies. Contains 2 stories from Spicy
   Detective, 1937 and 1940. The colophon explains that "this edition was
   produced on stolen paper and highjacked equipment."

_____. Robert Leslie Bellem's Dan Turner, Hollywood Detective, ed. John
   Wooley. Bowling Green: Bowling Green University Popular Press, 1983.
   1st edition in wrappers, probably published simultaneously with the
   clothbound issue. Contains stories from pulp magazines, 1938-1948.
