The Abortionist By Aaron BEll (Kozy Books 140, 1961)

This is the first post in my blog Pulps 'n' PPaperbacks, in a series of I don't know how many? I sold my entire Pulp collection 10 years ago due to my shitty financial situation. I've recently been getting the Pulp collecting itch and felt the need to scratch it.

So as way of documenting what I have picked up, I'll show some of the wildest artwork, cover blurbs from the US and UK.

I'm no expert and I'm doing this more to catalogue what I have and maybe meet some like minded Pulp collectors from around the globe, get in touch and maybe we can trade.

Now on with the show.

Classic title and cover artwork, just take a look at the abstract painting on the wall. Takes the sleaze out of the picture, well almost. It's a thinking mans cover as they say.

Nice adds, one is on the reverse of the book for Peter Lewis' Father of The Amazons. The other is a general add for Kozy books which inlcudes The Abortionist.

Kozy books are well worth tracking down and cheap to boot, expect to pay around $10/$15 for this book in good condition from dealers, maybe a little more if your in the UK like me. But as with anything keep digging and it may turn up.


  1. Wow! What an amazing cover illustration!

    1. It seems pretty sleazy on first glance, but it has a hidden depth with the abstract painting. I'm uploading another now :)
