DRAIN WRECK
Hmm... looks like it was four or five shots that did her in—tequila most likely.


Originally published in 1945 as The Dead Lie Still, William L. Stuart’s thriller Dead Ahead is about an ex-naval intelligence officer who after the war runs afoul of a gang of local thugs. The Ace edition here appeared in 1953 and the art is by Norman Saunders. It’s a double novel, and the other side is Day Keene’s Mrs. Homicide, also with Saunders art. Twice the vice, one easy price.

DEAD SET
Got room for one more corpse?

Guys, when I saw this cover I remembered your collection of pulps with women who’d died in bed. This is a worthy addition, I think. Her eyes aren’t open but the pose is exactly the same. Harry Schaare did the art. Amazing stuff on the site this week, by the way. Have no idea how you do it.

Thanks, Peter. This is twice now you’ve added to one of our collections. You totally saved us from having to come up with a book post today, and we’re going to use the extra time wisely by getting into a cold white wine. Keep visiting. More good stuff to come.

UPSKIRTING THE ISSUE
Actually, from my perspective, I’m enjoying this just as much as if you'd taken your dress off.

Above, the cover of Al James’ Born for Sin, 1960, from Nightstand Books. James was aka Al James Hjerstedt, the son of writer Day Keene, who was born Gunard Hjerstedt. Harold McCauley art on this.

VANISHING POINTS
I've seen the needle and the damage done.


Today we have another cover collection for you. We had noticed quite a few pieces of pulp/sleaze art featuring syringes as a central element, so we’ve gathered up twenty examples, with art by Michel Gourdon and others. Some of these are from Flickr, so thanks to the original uploaders.

BAYOU WILDLIFE
They’re beautiful but they bite.


In honor of ’Gator Bait, which we wrote about a few days ago, we’ve gathered together a small collection of covers with art set in swamps and bayous. There are many different types of swamp denizens. You got your babes, your nymphs, your spawn, and even your occasional brat. Usually these creatures are safe to be around, but do remember that they attack if provoked. Thanks to all the original uploaders for these images.

KEENE TO FINNISH
Cold hearts and cold blood.


Cover art for four Day Keene thrillers published in Finland, circa 1949 to 1953. The artist on these was Swedish painter Bertil Hegland, whose work we’ll be showing you more of later. More Keene info and books here.

ONE FINE DAY
Two-fisted tough guys and double-crossing dames are all in a Day's work.

Gunard Hjertstedt wrote six books before he decided people weren’t digging his name. So he chose the pseudonym Day Keene and went on to publish some of the most entertaining novels of pulp’s golden age. Hjertstedt also wrote as William Richards, but it was the Day Keene moniker that he parlayed into international fame, writing titles like My Flesh Is Sweet, If the Coffin Fits, and Dead Dolls Don’t TalkSeveral of Keene’s novels were adapted to film, including 1960’s Chautauqua (written with Dwight Vincent), which was transformed into the Elvis Presley vehicle The Trouble with Girls. But don’t let that deter you—Keene’s novels are hard, fast and well worth the read.

History Rewind
The headlines that mattered yesteryear.
May 29
1914—RMS Empress Sinks
Canadian Pacific Steamships' 570 foot ocean liner Empress of Ireland is struck amidships by a Norwegian coal freighter and sinks in the Gulf of St. Lawrence with the loss of 1,024 lives. Submerged in 130 feet of water, the ship is so easily accessible to treasure hunters who removed valuables and bodies from the wreck that the Canadian government finally passes a law in 1998 restricting access.

1937—Chamberlain Becomes Prime Minister
Arthur Neville Chamberlain, who is known today mainly for his signing of the Munich Agreement in 1938 which conceded the Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia to Nazi Germany and was supposed to appease Adolf Hitler's imperial ambitions, becomes prime minister of Great Britain. At the time Chamberlain is the second oldest man, at age sixty-eight, to ascend to the office. Three years later he would give way to Winston Churchill.

1930—Chrysler Building Opens
In New York City, after a mere eighteen months of construction, the Chrysler Building opens to the public. At 1,046 feet, 319 meters, it is the tallest building in the world at the time, but more significantly, William Van Alen's design is a landmark in art deco that is celebrated to this day as an example of skyscraper architecture at its most elegant.
1969—Jeffrey Hunter Dies
American actor Jeffrey Hunter dies of a cerebral hemorrhage after falling down a flight of stairs and sustaining a skull fracture, a mishap precipitated by his suffering a stroke seconds earlier. Hunter played many roles, including Jesus in the 1961 film King of Kings, but is perhaps best known for portraying Captain Christopher Pike in the original Star Trek pilot episode "The Cage".
