Robert Leslie Bellem Sleaze
Since there's so much good stuff to talk about, I don't often dwell on the bad. But just to break the pattern, here are a couple of pretty stinky books. I read them (or most of them) long ago, in the throes of Turnermania, and was thoroughly underwhelmed. As I recall, the smut was tame, the prose pedestrian and the humor nonexistent - so why bother? These days, when just about everything Bellem wrote is coming back into print, these are once more available. My advice: Stick to the Dan Turner reprints.
