In case of emergency

This weekend I was sucked into the vortex that is eBay, a world I haven't visited this past decade and which I'd almost forgotten existed.

The world is full of beautiful and mysterious things, I learned, and there is a treasure trove of obscure editions of Simenon titles in New South Wales, Australia.

I LOVE these old covers!
So retro!

Love the covers! And who would ever guess that there was such a treasure trove hiding in New South Wales?

I keep wondering if the story inside will in any way resemble the story these covers have me imagining...

It was just like the old pulp magazines of yore. You were drawn in by the covers, hoping the stories would live up to what they promised. In most cases they didn't. And yes, I love the covers, too.
