    Got my copy of 'True Crime Detective Magazines' today -- a few days after I odered it. Thought for a while maybe the book was genuinely jinxed. Some great images -- deadly dames galore. The book ends in
    '69. Which is a pity. Would have liked to have seen what seventies (or for that matter, eighties and nineties detective magazines were like).

    Interesting that what was considered sordid, slacious or sleazy in a previous era (and for some still is)is somehow more acceptable when it has the wiff of nostalgia.
