Autumn acquisitions

Autumn Acquisitions

Grady Hendrix's newly published celebration of 70s and 80s horror paperbacks, Paperbacks from Hell, certainly is an entertaining read.

However, every one of those schlock paperbacks appearing in the book is going to be snapped up soon by fans and speculators. Even the most cheeseball of the titles published by Zebra, Leisure, Signet, and Pocket during that era are going to see their asking prices double.......or triple. Or quadruple.

So, over the past two weeks, I've been making my own forays to grab those schlock horror stories while they still are other words, no more than $5.00 each or so.

I've done reasonably well (pictures below). My advice ? Now is as good a time as any to decide which books from Paperbacks from Hell deserve your attention, and act accordingly.....before the speculators start elbowing their way in...........
