Here are some of my recent acquisitions with my comments. Yours are welcome.
Wild - Gil Brewer
Hey, it's Brewer. It's a Gold Medal. How bad can it be?
The Eighth Circle - Stanley Ellin
Never read Ellin, but noticed this Dell pb. I think some of the best pb crime novels of the 50s and 60s were Dell.
Frantic - NoŽl Calef
The cover of this Gold Medal pb caught my eye cause it read: "French Title: Ascenseur pour L'ťchafaud", which, of course, was a great French New Wave film by Louis Malle, much discussed here.
Angel's Ransom - David Dodge
It's a David Dodge Dell pb, it's got to be good, right?
A Nice Girl Like You - Richard Wormser
I've been advised to pick up anything by Wormser. His writing is a lot like McKimmey's and so far I prefer McKimmey, but Wormser is good.
