Adult Book AB1518 1970

It Was Half-Past The Honeymoon. Orgy Time!

From the back:

It took Lori a while to get over her scruples, but when she discovered what other husbands than her own had to offer, she came to hope that the swap game could do half as much to broaden her husband’s sexual outlook as it had for hers. The other wives found Ted a bit disappointing too . . . and decided that they preferred sharing Lori for lust!

The Moon Terror & Other Stories

The Moon Terror & Other Stories 1927

The Moon Terror & Other Stories is a hardcover collection of four early stories from Weird Tales magazine from its first year of publication (1923). It was issued in 1927 by the publisher of Weird Tales.

Since its initial publication in as a two-part serial in 1923, readers of Weird Tales had sent in letters making repeated requests asking for the short novel The Moon Terror to be reprinted. Unfortunately, by the time the publishers finally got around to reprinting the story in book form in this collection in 1927, interest in The Moon Terror had waned (one factor being that Amazing Stories had come into existence in 1926 and was publishing similar SF horror tales).

So despite the publisher’s initial great hopes for The Moon Terror & Other Stories, the book proved to be a fiasco. It took years for it to sell out despite being peddled for $1.50 a copy in Weird Tales (usually in a prominent back cover ad) on into the 1930s. It was eventually given away free with a subscription to the magazine to try to dispose of the unsold copies.

The shocking story about what goes on behind the motel door

From the back:

WOMAN IN BONDAGE!
This is the revealing story about one woman who was owned body and soul by a ruthless operator. He used her innocence and beauty like commodities—to further his own ends.
She could have freed herself by talking about what went on in the dead of night on the grounds of the Florida motel—but what good would it do her? She was DAMAGED GOODS!
She knew it would take a man made of steel to make a real woman of her again. But what decent man would ever want her—with her past?
