Author: Hall Bennett

Best things about this cover:
- When they say "hands are hard to draw," they aren't kidding. Yikes.
- What's most interesting to me are the *tiniest* suggestions of "bed": head is on a pillow, which I can tell is a pillow only by seeing the corner (which merges w/ the end of the word "Bride"); the small bit of ruffle on her shoulder, suggesting a frilly nightgown; the prominent ring emphasizing "it's marital!," raising questions about the suggestive "Part Time" part of the title ...
- Really like the font on "Part Time Bride." Really wish "Part Time" were properly punctuated.
Best things about this back cover:
Kind of a cool logo, actually. It's all very saucy for the mid-'40s, frankly.
"It's probably just another poor fish—customer to you, sugar. Those birds—the police, I mean—aren't likely to be so reticent."
Well, that's one way to handle slang in your stories.
