First up for our new releases is our first “erotica” title. I put the word in quotes because by today’s definitions of erotica it’s fairly tame. Let us call it light erotica, or mild erotica. Anyways it’s a good novel (and rare, well not anymore) that moves along quickly.

Campus Doll by Donald E. Westlake

Campus Doll by Donald E. Westlake

The intimate story of a coed who turned “love” into a big business! At Clifton College the male students were never frustrated. When a campus cutie teased and ran, there was always Jackie Hayes’ “study rooms” to resort to. There you could do your “homework” in peace. There you could carry on experiments so dear to the hearts of all eager students, with tutors truly dedicated to their work: Sandy, Laura, Rita, Honey and even Jackie–the campus doll herself. True, this extra-curricular work led to no degree but it did satisfy a need, with girls on your own mental level–coeds who knew as much about English Lit, Advanced Psychology–and Love–as you did. But with all the fun comes a dark side. Jackie thought it would all be so simple. Turn a trick a few times a week and she would have enough money to stay in college. But it kept escalating. Now she was a Madame of the house and behind her back even Marijuana was being sold! She didn’t realize she’d need protection, even if that protection was unwanted and cruel. Men were the problem, Jackie was convinced, and that’s when she turned to the arms of innocent Rita. First published in 1961 by Donald E. Westlake under the pen name, Edwin West.

Sea Change by C.M. Kornbluth and Judith Merril

The seas were capable of great resources, including the extraction of metal so civilization could grow. But civilization was still separated the “haves” and the “have not”. The domes under the water were a dangerous enough place to work. But when there were saboteurs about, things got a lot worse. For Lev Sloane, a valued technician, remaining politically neutral was no longer an option. Now he had to show the beautiful African, Dr. Vanderpoel, around the dome and keep safe. But from what direction was the danger coming? Sloane didn’t know.

Look Back to Love by Vin Packer

Springtime in France, cruel in its beauty, tore them apart. Six people on a vacation in the hopes of redeeming their seemingly lost lives: Todd Phelps–the American newspaper columnist, whose drive for ambition has left him frustrated and discontent; Fran Phelps–his wife, who feels that having been married to Todd did not fulfill her dreams of marriage and family; Edward Allen–the aspiring writer, who believed that his detachment from humanity was because he is not capable of feeling love; Janet Carew–the mysterious Englishwoman, forever seeking what she believes to be love and somehow finding it; Henry Carew–her grotesque husband, outwardly appearing to enjoy his wife’s infidelity; and–Philip Carew–the lonely misguided son, who had a reason for his bizarre attachment to his mother. It drew Todd into a vortex of destructive, wanton passion–for another woman. It gave Fran a glimpse of the forbidden and terrible paths of desire. Then France, mistress of the world, taught them the deeper of meaning of love. Their relationships intertwine, and they will have to embrace these demons in order to survive! A novel poignant and searing, by Vin Packer, author of Spring Fire and Dark Intruders. This book was originally published as a Gold Medal paperback original in 195 3.
