Poker According To Maverick
1st Dell printing, Oct 1959
2nd printing, Dec 1959

I have added images of the title page and detail of the copyright / publishing page for the 2nd printing (I have had to tweak these a bit to minimize curvature and perspective).

There are several variations of the back cover, some showing advertisements for Jeep or Kaiser Aluminum. The royal flush design may be the earliest.

° - publication date assigned in field may've been taken from ''double your pleasure'' james corrick; it cannot've been before the ace double or after the 1962 next ace books double format mmpb

andre-norton.com lists this as cat# D-096, but this is incorrect: the cat# borne is D-96

Poker According To Maverick
I had to cobble together information on release date and other details from online sources as my copy is missing its title and copyright page. I searched google and could find no indication of who the author was, and that included an Internet Archive scanned version of the 1994 reprint. The 1959 date is from Abe books listings, but the 1994 reprint gives a 1962 date. Any corrections are welcome - I know there are variant back covers as I've seen some that feature advertising.

Never Say "No!"
''satan rules the night'' is not the sub-title of this book: it is not a sub-title.

publishers of ''one-handed fiction', ''adult fiction'', ''top shelf books'' etc. - known as ''sleaze'' category mmpbs - had taken to republishing their wares under random different raunchy(/ier)-sounding titles (and sometimes also undeclared pseudonyms), to the extent that laws were passed requiring publishers choosing to re-title a book to declare the earlier title upon the front cover.

(the laws may only apply/have applied to merkin mass-market paperbacks (mmpbs) distributed primarily via the news wholesalers; but yr hmbl srppnt. does not know this to be the case.)

Neil Gaiman

Neverwhere
One of three souvenirs from the Avon Books booth at the Southern Festival of Books (1997?). Not bad for a first (solo) novel, kept my interest (when I finally got round to reading it), though I figured before the end which decision Richard would make. There is some nifty wordplay on various London placenames; the Underground map is included on purpose.
