Nightmare Alley

In his comment to an earlier post, Steve Lewis mentioned that he'd never seen this paperback and that it might be rare. I bought it off the paperback rack at a store in Brownwood, Texas, in 1976 and never read it because I'd read some other edition I had. I had no idea it might be hard to find. At any rate, in response to Steve's request, here's the front cover of the book.

Thanks, Bill. That's quite a cover, one I know I've never seen before. If I had, I'm pretty sure I'd remember it.

There's only one copy listed for sale on ABE. That one's described as being in VG Plus condition, with an asking price of $40.

Note "asking price." I doubt it'll sell, but that would make mine worth a good bit more than I'd ever have expected. Not that it's going anywhere. Books check in; they don't check out.
