Er, can you elaborate on this "pornographic appendix"? Not written by Jim Thompson, I take it? When was this book line out?

I find it incredible how these books were treated so cheaply back in the day, the trashy covers and porno appendices and the like. I know, that's pulp. And without pulp we probably wouldn't have these novels. But the likes of JT are treated as kind of "heritage" authors now, quality classic covers etc.

Actually I'm not sure which is worse...
