Paperback 251: Episode / Peter W. Denzer (Popular Library 621)

Paperback 251: Popular Library 621 (1st ptg, 1954)

Title: Episode
Author: Peter W. Denzer
Cover artist: uncredited

Yours for: not available (property of "Paperback 250" contest winner!)

Best things about this cover:

  • "Why won't the braless zombie look at me directly!? O, the melancholy. Where's my diary...?"
  • "Vanity, thy name is braless zombie."
  • "I brought you that braless zombie milk you asked for, honey. You'll have to come over here and get it, as I can't take my eyes off this hideous portrait of myself."
  • "Hard-hitting" = "It hurts!"

Best things about this back cover:

  • "Shh! Did you hear that? Sounds like braless zombies!"
  • "Oh god, please don't let her take my salmon throw pillow away!"
  • "Many will flip straight to not like the brutal scenes of callous indifference; of patients in orgies for the amusement of attendants..."
