Pyramid - 1966 U.S.A Softback

Post by The Fox »

This is my favourite cover of the ones i own.

It was published in August 1966 in America by Pyramid and cost 60c.

Nice to see a picture of Sol Yurick himself on the back also.

That's a great version you got there, Fox.  I like the overhead drawing on the front a lot.  And it is especially cool with a picture of Yurick at the time.

Well, before becoming a Novelist he was a Social Worker, in New York, during the 50s/60s. This is why he wrote a Novel about Gangs. He knew Very Well those Guys.

But Yeah, he looks like a Professor indeed.

This is, specifically, the Pyramid - 1966 U.S.A Softback thread, so it must be that cover, some 10 or so posts up...

Black cover depicting a birds eye perspective of a street at night and the Dominators being confronted by the Blazers. Street looks similar to the Orphans scene in the movie.
