The rantings of a bookdealer in Brooklyn, New York.

Thursday, January 3, 2008


Arthur Bittner was a seaman, landlocked in a large midwestern city. He had peculiar urges...and he started searching for something to put down the strange impulses of desire...but in the words of a local bookseller this was 'a tight town; no hot books here.' And so the vicarious means to settle the blood-lust coursing through Bittner's body were unavailable. And once the sickness had taken hold, nothing could act as an antidote to Bittner's sex-crazed, poisoned mind.
See? I provide a valuable depraved landlocked sailors anyway.

Looks like a Bilbrew cover but I'm not 100%.

New stuff in the Pulp Fiction Cover Gallery and a new organizational system. The Sex/Cheesecake set was getting out of control so I broke it down by decade. It's actually much more illuminating now that all the traveling salesmen, bored suburban housewives, beatniks, JDs, and hippies are sorted into their appropriate time periods.

As always you can subscribe to an RSS feed of my covers here (this is separate from/in addition to the regular blog feed) .

Mystery is next in the queue for a good working over.

Neither sailor nor landlocked, but depraved; so I thank you :)
