Bill, I've got a technical question. Are these your books that you plop down on a scanner to post, or are you accessing some archive off in the internet maze?

Bill Crider said...

The answer is that it just depends. Sometimes they're mine (when I have time and inclination to scan), and sometimes they're books that I've seen listed on eBay and copied. This one's a copy. Most of the copies were made at least a year ago.

Interestingly, this book doesn't show up on Stop, You're Killing Me. Aha...it's listed under it's original title, Puzzle for Pilgrims.

Hi Bill,

Really like your site, but have noticed that you almost never mention the artist of the cover or the publication year (Cover art by John Northcross, 1950 in this case).

I think all of this tidbits of info are interesting.

I agree Thomas, but that's because I usually don't know who the artist is. I pick up some of these scans from eBay, and that info isn't often given.
