PimPage: An Occasional Feature in Which I Call Attention to Books of Interest


And you thought they didn't make covers like this anymore!

The Raffle: Wayne D. Dundee: Amazon.com: Kindle Store: Milo had a sweet scam going. Aided by the luscious Angie, whose face and curves could fog the brain of any man, it was almost too easy to fool the local rubes as they traveled across the country from one rural gin joint to the next. They always moved on holding a fresh wad of cash and left the suckers slack-jawed and unsuspecting.

Thanks for the nice mention of THE RAFFLE, Bill. Unfortunately, they *don't* make covers like this anymore (at least not often enough). When I was a hormone-charged youth and buying most of my books off drug store spinner racks, I often bought titles (like the Signet Carter Browns) mostly based on the covers ... I maintain RAFFLE's story is good on its own, but if I get a few extra sales the same way --- mainly due to its cover --- well, that's okay too.

The Carter Browns with McGinnis covers didn't even need a story.
