This Week 12/15/21:
Cornell Woolrich Pulp Appearances

Need a little suspense in your life?  Few wrote it better than Cornell Woolrich.  This week I cataloged new pulp magazines which featured a number of appearances by this important writer.   Woolrich wrote many, many short stories, under his own name and under pseudonyms. Author story contributions in pulps are often revised and changed upon book publication. One interesting note is that Woolrich would re-cycle some of his stories, sometimes just changing the title, sometimes re-working them. A number of his stories remain uncollected.

Also recently online are some new to stock supernatural books including some of the "Creeps" series books, all without original dust jacket but included are facsimile jackets for them.

New pulp listings also include some nice Startling Stories and Thrilling Wonder Stories.

Susan and I wish you a joyous holiday season and a prosperous new year, and thank you for your continued support.
