Comic Cuts - 24 January 2014
I've now received the proof copy of The Man Who Searched For Fear and, with some minor tweaks, it should be out on schedule next week . . . so copies should start arriving with people about a week later. During the week I've published a handful of adverts for the book which anyone with a blog or website can repost.

The most interesting of these is Find The Lady by R. C. Finney, an early Scion paperback with a really nice expressionistic cover. The last, Don't Die Too Soon, is from the tail end of the gangster boom, published by Ralph Stokes in around 1953/54. Not sure who the artist is . . . perhaps Kris?
