I have not found a way to include a PayPal block that allows choice so unfortunately you will have to contact me by phone or e-mail to purchase any of the above, postage and package for a single paperback in UK is £2.00, it obviously gets cheaper (per copy) if you make multiple purchases.

Nat Gould & Mellifont “Racing Novels”

A precursor  to Dick Francis? Must admit I had not heard of him. The “A Racecourse Tragedy” seems pretty rare if you check the price on ABE. These “Mellifont” paperbacks are not in the best condition two have a piece of the spine missing and one, “A Stable Mystery”, like the Donald when serving in the forces is concerned, has no spine at all.

I think 1949, one of the first in the series by Frank Brendon is probably the rarest but is in the worse condition the series seems to be mainly Nat Gould with a couple by Edward Woodward and one each by Vann Larr and Frank Brendon.

Fifty-Two Pickup – Elmore Leonard

Porno sex, ruthless blackmail, savage murder – just openers in a game of big money and brutal betrayal….. “Excitement…an armtwisting pageturner”

What a “blurb” and Soon to be a major movie!

Fifty Two Pickup – Elmore Leonard

I am not usually a fan of photographic covers but I can make an exception for this one.


Fifty-Two Pickup – Elmore Leonard

The Trackless Thing by Justin Atholl

A “Mushroom” Publishers example, 32 (though it says 31 on last page) small booklet 6″ X 4″,. The “Mushroom” period is a reference to the times of paper rationing during and after WWII. Ex servicemen were offered a paper ration as a “resettlement initiative” that was after books were published on any paper that could be found, some were printed on greaseproof butter wrappers, and were very short, though this example is particularly small and short.

The Trackless Thing 244


that entered houses, killing dogs with maniacal cruelty: a Thing that left absolutely no track or trace of itself: a Thing that shot men with bullets fired by a gun lying in a locked drawer…this was the problem faced by Superintendent Lakin.

I can only find one other copy for sale on ‘tinternet at over £50.






The Trackless Thing 244

The Trackless Thing by Justin Atholl (Pseudonym of UK journalist and author Thomas Sidney Denham (1906-1968))

Published by Everybody’s Books – Manchester 32 page undated booklet. “The Trackless Thing” by Justin Atholl was published in 1943 by Everybody’s Books, a short-lived wartime outfit operated by the Kelly brothers. The cover art, unsigned, was used on a handful of titles by this publisher, and also by their partner, the Mitre Press.”
