    Glad you guys enjoyed it. :-) Brewer is one of my favorite paperback noir authors (well, his ‘50s work, anyhow, for reasons the thread touched on), so it was great to introduce him to those who may not have already been familiar with him.

    The thread was kind of fun to put together, I may have to do a few more of those down the road.

    Thanks, very kind of you to say that. While I do sprinkle a few new releases in, you’ve captured what my interest and intent is with my daily Showcase Book. In this era of a seeming deluge of new Indie and micro-press trade-paperback horror being marketed and lauded on Twitter, I think it’s particularly important now to give a nod to all that came before, both original and reprint, so their existence and importance is at least noted.

    Example: that above 1971 novel by Lieberman is one of the earliest modern horror novels, preceding the typically cited trio of first appearances of Levin’s ROSEMARY’S BABY, Tryon’s THE OTHER, and King’s CARRIE as books which created the modern Horror genre and publishing brand...yet it’s all but forgotten and never cited as the groundbreaking book it was. Hard to sum all that up in a tweet, but I figure at the very least I’ve made others aware that the showcased book exists and that the past holds some real gems.
