Title: Journey to a Woman
Author: Ann Bannon
Cover artist: photo cover, I think
Yours for: No. I keep. (probably worth about $60)
Best things about this cover:
- It's cruddy. But this is a novel by one of the biggest names in lesbian pulp, so I'm fond of it nonetheless.
- She's been ambered! (that reference was for "Fringe" fans only ... so, like, five of you)
- Is that text supposed to be a poem? Whose / Bright idea was it to break the / Lines that / way?
Best things about this back cover:
- Here's some important "gay" paperback code language: "half-" anything. Also, "shadows."
- Hey, I wanna go "tearing through the night on a fool's errand at the whim of a beautiful spoiled woman who had beckoned." That sounds awesome!
- "The strangely alluring woman called Vega!" — well, I've got at least one friend who will find this book interesting. A friend named 'Vega." You probably guessed that.
"Charlie has some idea for a new toy," Cleve went on. "He wants to call it 'The Scooth.' It's sort of a spring, a great big thing you can crawl inside or sit on top of and bounce."
Toys are important on your journey to a woman.
