Marcial Lafuente Estefanía, the Louis L’Mour of Mexico

Posted in pulp fiction, Uncategorized with tags , , , on November 3, 2010 by vintagesleazepaperbacks

In the pulp days, one could find the latest Nightstand, Bedstand, Midwood, Pocket, Gold Medal, Saber, etc., at the thousands of newstsands in every major city across the country; these stands sold newspapers, magazines and books (the Nightstands were always classified as magazines, not novels).

The newsstand is now a rarity, and they seldom carry paperback books ecept for racks with popular mass market titles. Not so in Mexico. While in Tijuana, we noticed newsstands on every corner, carrying a variety of newspapers and pornographic comics and little magazines, as well stacks of western novels by one Marcial Lafueente Estefania. Hundreds of them.

Estefania, 1903-1984, was the son of journalist and writer Federico Lafuente , author of  The Ballad of Don Quixote (1916).  .  The Spanish Civil War  was the foundation of his writing: during his incarceration by the government, he claims to have written his first novel on toilet paper with a stylus.  His two sons helped him write his books toward the end of his life, and he did one serious novel that flopped.

He’s the Louis L’Amour of Spanish western novels,m pumping out one a week, hundreds if not thousands of these short genre novels — they all tend to be in the 90-100 page range. What we found interesting is how most of them are printed: with thin glossy covers much like the paper once used by Fabian/Saber/Vega Books.

How are they? We don’t read Spanish so we don’t know, but a quick glance, they look like they have breezy, fast-paced prose.

Many of the copies we saw in Tijuana looked water damaged and used, and were priced lower than the ones that looked new. Seems they practice was (still is?) that one could return these books for a low price and get another; this way, they never knew how many people read these books, but they were and still are quite popular, the way Louis L’Amour still is now.

From Olympia Press.


It’s one of society’s most taboo subjects, along with incest: when adult men lust for, and seduce, young girls who are not of legal age. But it happens, and it happens a lot, as the following case histories attest. Some call these young girls “jailbait.” Another term is “nymphet.”

In Dr. Garth Mundinger-Klow’s most controversial socio-sexual study to date, seven men confess to their experiences with nymphets, lusting for and seducing girls from the ages of 10-17. These men introduce and instruct, and sometimes learn a new thing or two from their tender young lovers. Needless to say, no kink is left unexplored!

These case studies are not for the politically correct, and expose man’s

Aura of Sensuality by Ennis Willie (Merit Books, 1963)

Posted in Uncategorized on October 24, 2009 by vintagesleazepaperbacks

Willie - Aura of Sensuality A

Ennis Willie’s smooth tough guy Sand, who “no man walks on,” heads into upper New York state small town Bent’s Landing to find out who murdered his old buddy, Eddie.  Sand must find out because he has “blood pack” — Eddie had given up some organs for Sand in the past, so Sand carries parts of Eddie inside him.

Bent’s Landing is almost Orrie Hitt territory in location and populace — you have your drunks, your shameless hussies, your mindless thugs.  No one wants him to solve Eddie’s murder — not the sheriff, not the townspeople, not the killer.

Eddie was writing short stories and novels about his and Sand’s days “in the war” — not a government war, but a war in the syndicate.  Eddie was also having an affair with the wife of a seven-foot thug.  There are many who could have killed Eddie.

Along the way, Sand sleeps with a couple of woman, of course, and kills people, and gets injured…

The set-up is like an old Western, the mysterious gun man who rides into town, gets all the men jealous and the women’s panties wet.

A smooth book but I am still not convinced Ennis Willie is all that…I need to read a non-Sand novel.  I’ll keep looking since the writing, on a sentence level,  is top notch.

sextramp Olympia Press has issued a fun collection of five crazy stories by Gabriel Kellgren called Sexy White Trash Trailer Tramps, see here

and @ Mobipocket.

The funniest story is where aliens abduct an entire trailer camp and put the white trashers in a zoo for them to observe these human have orgies and get drunk on beer.  Another one, a 15-year-old tramp has the hots for a writer in a trailer, but both are killed by her hulk of a husband, and he takes the writer’s novel and says he wrote it and become famous.  Other tawdry white trash stories happen at a Motel 6 and at the wedding.

Reminded me of Loren Beauchamp’s Sin on Wheels and Orrie Hitt’s Trailer Tramp.

Vintage Sleaze Paperbacks — The Coolness of the Past

Holliday - Scars of List

Welcome this Vintage Sleaze Paperbacks Blog.  The purpose of this blog is to post some hot, cool paperback covers for the gaze of your eye sockets, and to review and discuss selected titles.

Most of the titles will be from Don Elliott, Lauren Beauchamp, David Challon, Mark Ryan  (all pen names of Robert Silverberg), Gerrold Watkins and Mel Johnson (pen names of Barry N. Malzberg), as “notes” toward the two monographs I am writing, one on Malzberg and one on Silverberg and his pen names.

(But I will discuss others too as I go along — Joan Ellis, March Hastings, Andrew Shaw [aka Lawrence Block and Donald Westlake], Don Bellmore, etc etc.]

I wanted to write a short monograph or essay on the Don Elliott/Laoren Beauchamp books, as they were/are of high quality, compared to many books of the time or even erotica today.  They also exhibit Silverberg’s early style. But I was uncertain where such an essay or book would find a home — best here on the net.

I have discussed Barry Malzber’s US-era Olympia Press titles under his name and Gerrold Watkins in a monograph, Barry N.  Malzberg: Beyond Science Fiction, Toward Psychoanalysis (Borgo Press) due out late 2009, but I do not have 3 of the Watkins and none of the Johnson (Midwood Books) that are hard to find…as I do locate them, I will post a blog here.
