      “The Chocolate Speedway”? “The Reamers”??? HAHAHAHA. I actually Googled a couple of these just to see if you weren’t pulling my leg.

      Hilarious! Love the little logo at the top right of the French Line collection.

      I think I actually want to pick up a few of these just for the comical value of how they must read nowadays.

      I don’t know how often Mr Brathwaite makes this same mistake, but..

      “INTACT”. It’s one single word. It’s not “in tact”.

      Sometimes your grammatical skills are frankly embarrassing.

      The Devil is Gay should be the title of JimBryant’s biography.

      I recently read “The Golden Age of Gay Fiction”, Dewey Wayne Gunn, Ed., MLRPress, 2009, ISBN 978-1-60820-048-1

      It’s a series of essays about the history of the genre. The book is valuable for its information about the business, the authors and the changes in censorship law.

      Unfortunately, the cover reproductions are small, so my recommendation is to read it for the history.

      There are other books that focus on the covers, however I don’t have the info handy. Anyone out there who can recommend other resources?

      @MikeE: in tact– I thought it was word-play.

      tact

      adroitness and sensitivity in dealing with others or with difficult issues.

      The “Bottoms Up” title is actually available on eBay. You can press the Buy It Now button. Buttons for Bottoms.

      Won’t be cheap, though. $125.

      Original cost, probably around $1.95. Not a bad investment, as it turns out.*

      ——-
      * Probably would shock the artist, writer, and publisher, if they’re still alive, all who’d wish they could get that kind of money for their books now.

      @David Gervais: There are some additional images here, as well as a little commentary on publisher French Line.

      I hadn’t noticed that The House of Homos was written by ‘Guy Fawkes’.
