New Arrivals: Pulps & Sleaze
 
1.
"I'm not a punch card, I'm a human being!"  An upright married couple tries to resist a sinister computer corporation and the neighborhood bisexual dominatrix club. Amazing mid-60s pulp erotica: equal parts reactionary sleaze, satire of IBM, and dystopian warning against the gathering storm of relentlessly ambitious female computer programmers. Hostile to robots.
2.
 
"What gets into a woman to go homosexual?" Vintage sleaze that does its best to investigate the question. With frequent pauses for equally explicit admiration of a house's huge basement, glassed-in sunporch, sprawling patio, and "handsomely wood-paneled den."
 

3.

Pulp anthology with spectacular cover art by Eric Stanton. Lurid S&M erotica filled out with historical trivia (on King Ludwig of Bavaria, the Malleus Malleficarum, and the fall of the Romanoff dynasty.) Educational sleaze.

$125.00

4.

Third in the "Man from C.A.M.P." series. Holmes assembles a team to foil an assassin with spycraft and amateur theatricals. 

$275.00

5.
 
Fourth in the "Man from C.A.M.P." series. Holmes helps out Interpol by tracing the kidnappers of handsome blond teenage boys, from Tijuana to a 'stud-house' in Lisbon.
6.

Fifth in the James Bond-esque "Man from C.A.M.P." series: Jackie Holmes falls in love with a baron and visits the haunted Castle Gaye. Cover copy promises: "THAT MAN FROM C.A.M.P CRUISES A GRUESOME GHOST!" By the legendary Victor Banis, who also wrote a number of genre gothic romances under other names.

7.

Eighth in the "Man from C.A.M.P." series. A gang of dognappers, led by the dominatrix Anna Lingus, is "plundering the wealth of individuals whose lives of shameless sin will not allow them to seek police protection." 
 

$200.00

8.

Early and influential gay pulp, passing easily between code (young men are "vague," the "nervous type," "in the business") and transparent exposition: "Now, since the war, we've got this new thing in Bay City. Everyone calls them 'gay'. We have gay bars, gay parks, gay clubs, gay theaters and hotels."  

$200.00

9.
 
"The story of a rich but girlish young gentleman under the control of his pretty step-sister and her aunt: written by himself at his step-sister's order, with an account of his punishments, the dresses he was made to wear, his final subjection and his curious fate."
 

10.

"A beard is your ticket to a torrent of passion down in -- LUST HELL!"  Beatnik sleaze erotica with some kind of style. Follow Basil Crowe, hipster; Rose, disgruntled bookseller (bookseller!); and Mechanical Annie, nymphomaniac, down the alleyways where "wine, pot and lust flow like water." Rare.

$150.00

11.

Uncommon beatnik sleaze pastiche, with more realism than strictly necessary for the genre: "Sometimes I was awful in bed--particularly if I'd had a lot to drink," but "A guy likes to feel he is extraordinary in bed, even if he is lousy."

$175.00


12.
 
Even more sin hipsters and sintime beatniks. Di Prima's classic semi-autobiographical erotic novel.


13.

Pseudo-case-study of reincarnation and cosmic being: "[O]ne of the weirdest, one of the farthest out sexual histories you've ever heard of."

$20.00

14.
"I'm not a total idiot, Miss. I do know what goes on in hippie crash pads." 
Rare, explicit hippie sleaze with no socially redeeming virtues - except its title. Not found in OCLC or in trade.

15.

Dr. L.S. Dee, Mind Spy of Haight-Ashbury, fights enemy agents infiltrating the psychedelic movement. "[D]anger, deep involvement in drugs and novel mental experiences, furious fights and beautiful girls."

$25.00

16.
Lovely gay biker sleaze paperback emphasizing sadomasochism, with a cover by an uncredited Darrel Millsap.


17.

An edgy motorcycle gang in denim jackets picks up a nice college couple. "Follow the Bike Freaks on their wild trips, through intimate explorations of physical and mental rapture and agony!"

$100.00

Pseudo-historical guide to witch sex, cribbed from a variety of sources, with a bibliography ranging from Aleister Crowley to the author's own "Study of Deviate Sexual Fantasies."

$25.00
