So here they are, my paperbacked spoils from Gryphon Press' wonderful Paperback Expo.- There's some real gems of literature here - and some real smut! Here at Freedom School Records we don't discern between the two, so often they're the same thing! Plus everything here grabs me graphically. Above you see a decently rare Bart paperback of Lovecraft Tales - I've wanted one for a while, so when I found this in rough shape for cheap I had to have it. The cover is really great - I wish I know who the artist was. Below is the Avon paperback of HPL with another amazing painting .

My good friend Miriam has been telling me about this book forever, I was so glad to finally find one. The following etchings (right?) are found within - sorry for the blurs in some of these, it was the best I could do without hurting the book. Film fans take note - "HAXAN" director Benjamin Christensen directed a silent version of this A.A. Merritt terror classic!
Here's an issue of Avon Fantasy Reader that I didn't have. Mr. Bhob Stewart over at Potrzebie.blogspot.com hipped me to this title a while back - thanks Bhob! I'm sure the young males who bought this in the 50's all said the same thing when they saw this cover - "Wowww! Another Nelson Bond story!"
Here it is, my first printing of "I Am Legend" by Richard Matheson! In REALLY bad shape. It's my favorite novel of course, and if you HAVEN'T read it, sign offline NOW, leave your house, go to a bookstore, buy one, and don't use the internet again until you've read it. I couldn't be more serious.
These incredibly funny strips by MADman genius Al Jaffee are available in a hardcover now.
