the Publisher's Name Below:
Other U.S. Publishers
This section contains books that are from publishers that were too small to be included in the original list that you see on the Database Index Page. It also contains many American publishers that were established in the 1960's and 70's.
You're going to see a lot of "Sleaze" covers here, as well.
Since I have opened the site up to include contributed images of books from the 60's and 70's, I've had a hard time keeping pace. I will be adding new publishers and new images as often as I can. I'd like to particularly thank the contributors of covers in this section for their patience.
As this portion of the BookScans database grows, I've added lots of new web pages (at the left) and deleted many others when they became big enough to put on the main "Database Page." Each time I do that, I have to rework all the links. If you encounter any problems, please email me.
When a web page exceeds about 250 images, I am forced to build multiple pages and move that publisher to the Database Index. Below, in the Alphabetical Other Publishers' Pages, I wait until there are more than 25 scans to build that Publisher's own page and merge it into the list at the left.
A few of the publishers' pages will contain links to Kenneth R. Johnson's online book: Defunct Publishers, which is his ongoing, definitive index of several publishing houses that are no longer with us. It is a tremendous resource for those interested in the history of vintage U.S. paperbacks.
Note: Harlequin, Laser and White Circle, all of Toronto, Ontario, are now part of the "Non-US" database.
