As a collector of Horror Paperbacks, I’m always on the lookout for books I don’t have. It’s always nice to find little gems for my bookshelf.

Found these 3 recently.

This edition (Avon–1968) of John Christopher’s The Little People is a hard-to-find book. Probably because of the Nazi symbols on the cover. Though the book is much more subdued than the cover suggests.

The other 2 are from the 80’s Zebra Publishing imprint. Lots of fun, cheesy covers–but I so loved them. (I also really miss Rick Hautala).
