Wee Hours Vintage Sleaze Paperback Anomalies 1968 End of the Line
At some point in their short and slightly illegal lifetime, the Wee Hours line of paperbacks produced by Stanley Malkin and Edward Mishkin underwent a transformation. Gone were the now familiar, vibrant and goofy covers done by Eric Stanton, Gene Bilbrew, Bill Alexander and Bill Ward. They were replaced by these trippy, acid-induced line drawings with nightmare dungeon themes and shadow blobs. What happened? Where's the fun? Maybe the times, I guess...Bad psychedelics. Gone also was AMD the original distributor, replaced by EMD. Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. They still claimed to be out of Buffalo, New York, but the earlier address in the Prudential Building was now the Market Arcade on Main Street. I don't know what happened...but the series petered out in 1968.
