Sin A Rama Sleaze Sex Paperbacks of the Sixties HC
Published by Feral House
288p, full color, hardcover, 6.75"x10.25"
"Sin-A-Rama celebrates the forgotten world of erotic paperbacks from the 1960s, when sex acts were described with code words, writers used pseudonyms, and publishers hid behind mail drop addresses.

Earl Kemp, the notorious Greenleaf Books editor, provides an insider’s perspective, profiling famous and little-known co-workers. In “My Life as a Pornographer,” science fiction legend Robert Silverberg divulges how he and other famous authors learned their craft and earned their keep pounding out softcore sin."
