Doomed Sinner
















From collector Dan Kurdilla, of Wyndmore, PA, comes a scan that really has me baffled. It's the image on the right ... Doomed Sinner, by Dan Brennan, printed as Bedside BB1333.

The book was earlier issued as Newsstand Library U180 in 1961. There was more than one "Newsstand Library." This one was headquartered in Chicago.

Bedside/Bedtime books were published by Valiant Publications in New York, and had no association (that I can find)  with Newsstand Library.

Since both of these publishers have long since ceased operations, I asked Ken Johnson, the author of Defunct Paperbacks, the online book hosted by BookScans, and he confirms there was no connection.
