Paul Merchant (Harlan Ellison), Sex Gang, Nightstand Books, 1959

Out of curiosity, I checked on the prices for this one. $655 was the best deal.

I remember Harlan saying somewhere that he'd written a couple of these back in the fifties, but wouldn't divulge the pseudonym.

Word's out by now I see.

Oh, he's been pretty open about this one. He's been supposedly prone to destroy copies, but I suspect that was more likely with the Belmont Tower (iirc) double with Lee Hoffmann wherein Ellison liked her novella, and hated his own. (He reports he would do some autograph seekers the favor of ripping his novella out the book.)
