Race with Lust (Run for Cover) Roger Normandie (Orrie Hutt)

Originally a US production this copy states “Sole Distributors in Great Britain Ben’s Books Ltd. 49 Portland Rd. London – Reprinted by K & G Publications (Herts) Ltd. Hendon N W 1”

The book is described as much more sleazier than many books that were being prosecuted at the time, I found this description on line

“This racy novel — reprinted in paperback by Kozy as Race with Lust — is far more explicit sexually than any of his other books. S/M, rape, torture, blackmail and promiscuity are dealt with in greater detail than the usual Hitt novel, pretty bold in 1957 when in the early 1960s book much more tame were in court on obscenity charges.”

All About Annette – Alan Marshall = Donald E Westlake

All About Annette – Alan Marshall = Donald E Westlake

ABE has four copies of this book for sale at £81, £86, £93 and £262. Amazon list it as “Not Available” I have tried to understand what makes it so pricey, Marshall (in this case) was Donald E Westlake a very prolific and wide ranging author but I didn’t find out what was special about this title. This copy was printed in 1960 by Midwood and did have an ugly “label scar” on the front cover, see the legs of the girl on the right where the repair is.
