The Novels of E. Howard Hunt

The newspaper articles that appeared when E. Howard Hunt died barely mentioned his writing career. So I thought I'd do my part by posting a slideshow of the covers of the books I have. You can see it right here.

  1. Excellent slideshow, Bill. I've read a few Robert Dietrich novels and really enjoyed them. (I still find it amazing that a CPA could be a hardboiled lead character...) Art Bourgeau at Whodunnit in Philly turned me on to them.

    You don't have GM 297, LOVERS ARE LOSERS? And here I keep telling people on the street that this man Crider has a solid Gold Medal collection!

    I remember quite enjoying HOUSE DICK. If that novel's titular character had only worked at the Watergate, history might have been different.

  3. Sorry to disappoint, Richard. I guess I'll have to look for a copy of that one.

  4. This afternoon at our Children's Hospital PB sale I came across a Pinnacle edition from 1974 titled From Cuba, With Love. Just checked it against your slide show and after doing so noticed that it was formerly titled Ring Around Rosy.

  5. I think Pinnacle reprinted several of Hunt's books around that time. I didn't buy any of them, however.
