Bodies in Bedlam by Richard S. Prather

Shell Scott was up to his neck in guns, girls and gore. Constanza Carmocha was unarmed–that is, she didn’t have a gun. She didn’t need one, either. She had all the weapons that have ruined men from time immemorial–or time immoral. One man had had his throat slit because of her, another was going to die. She was surrounded by a guy who resembled a shaved ape and looked as though he could pick himself up with one hand. But the hand isn’t always quicker than the private eye, and as sure as my name’s Shell Scott, I’ll get to the bottom of this affair with the deadly dame.

Woman of Fire by Peggy Gaddis

It was after ten when she and Clem left the party … He said, a trifle thickly, “Where to? I haven’t any idea where you live. ” Viola slid close to him and lifted her face until her lips were against his ear. She spoke straight from her wildly beating heart, “Take me home with you. Please–please take me home with you”. His arms encircled her … “Sure, why not? Why the devil not? ” He leaned forward, gave the taxi-driver his address and turned to pull Viola’s trembling body hard against him. He covered her lips with his … Viola Barton thought that she could throw away her heart, deny her son his true father, and make a life for herself without the ecstasy of a young man’s love. She married Eugene, old and dying and passionless … and then found that there are wellsprings in a woman’s soul which cannot be stifled or denied There was room in her thoughts only for Clem … here beside her …

New Releases – Donald E. Westlake, Rex Stout, C.M. Kornbluth and Judith Merril http://www.brainplucker.com/new-releases-donald-e-westlake-rex-stout-c-m-kornbluth-and-judith-merril/ Tue, 13 Apr 2010 22:18:12 +0000 http://www.brainplucker.com/?p=1251 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.

But Guy Carew, half-Indian heir of murdered multi-millionaire Val Carew, saw fit to give it to her, and she innocently accepted the offer. Now she has her doubts: Was it truly out of the generosity of his heart, or something more sinister? Jean intends to find out; however, it seems that the murderer isn’t the only one who doesn’t want her to learn the truth! Somehow, for her and Guy, she must get through this in one piece ? or end up like Val Carew.
