  • In all its forbidden glory, period ‘sleaze’ erotica receives an investigation into the medium with extensive interviews and cover art.

    Contributions by Stephen J. Gertz, Jay A. Gertzman, John Gilmore, Michael Hemmingson, Lydia Lunch, Lynn Munroe and Robert Silverberg.

    SIN-A-RAMA celebrates the near-forgotten world of erotic paperbacks from the 1960s when sex acts were described with code words, writers used pseudonyms and publishers hid behind mail drop addresses.

    Sleaze paperbacks sold by the million, and their unorthodox content provoked FBI investigations, court battles and prison sentences for the crime of ‘obscenity’. Earl Kemp, the notorious Greenleaf Books editor, provides an insider’s perspective.

    In ‘My Life as a Pornographer’, science fiction legend Robert Silverberg divulges how he and other authors learned their sleaze craft.

    The bizarre glories of cover artists Robert Bonfils, Gene Bilbrew, Eric Stanton, Bill Ward and others are seen throughout in lurid colour. A useful appendix reveals the actual names behind the pseudonyms, revealing both the established and fly-by-night sleaze paperback operators.

    A newly expanded version.
