Couple of those ever-popular bizarro pulp fiction covers from the 1950s. I always wonder if the text inside could ever possibly do justice to the fantasies the covers inspire.

They're after the jump.

I used to know an author (dead now) who cranked these out frequently. She wrote under about 6 different pen names and was quite good. Each book followed a simple formula. She always put a bit of her personal experiences into each book but never enough for her girlfriends to absolutely identify themselves as one of the characters. She would confide in me about who reflected which of her girlfriends. And yes, what was between the covers was as good typically as the artwork on the front cover.

Yeah, but I wouldn't want to actually read one. I'm guessing the writing isn't that great.

OMG I totally want to read Queer Sisters. That sounds like a real classic. :)

It seems funny to me that the apparent publisher for Queer Sisters is "Stallion." That would seem to be more appropriate for a gay publication.

But I feel more drawn to can see the lust in the faces on that cover.
