Sin-A-Rama is a fun trip through the gutters of publishing. Filled with insight from some of the original editors and writers, you get the full story of the lucrative and dangerous game of publishing sex paperbacks in the sixties. Publishers faced moral watchdog groups as well as threatening obscenity laws, but for some the threat was worth the risk as these books sold millions at newsstands and adult bookstores all across America. lustrated throughout with scans of original cover art from sleazy paperbacks, quite a few unintentionally funny, make Sin-A-Rama is well worth the cover price and is available through Feral House here.
