March is 80s California Crazies Month

Here at the PorPor Books Blog, every once in a while we like to take a break from reading sci-fi, horror, and fantasy books from the interval from 1968 - 1988, and instead focus on books from another genre that were published during that era.

After a long, and at times unseasonably cold Winter 2018, I thought it would be nice to take in some vintage literature about California......and its crazier inhabitants. The state has always been known for craziness, and during the late 70s and early 80s a number of memorable novels were released that dealt with this side of California.

Crazed vigilantes, teenage deviants, serial killers, porn merchants, snuff film auteurs, sex cult aficionados..........and, of course, smog. Lots of smog !

They're all here in the pages of the five novels being reviewed this month !

To get you in the proper visual mood, I'm linking a site that offers photographs of LA in the late 70s and early 80s:
