We’ve got an excerpt from the chapter in the forthcoming book ”Mad World: An Oral History of New Wave Artists and Songs that Defined the 1980s” about New Order’s “Blue Monday” | READ

So, like a “Please Kill Me” for the ’80s?

They had this, the sequel to “Little Girl Lost” as well, also TWO BUCKS. Looking forward to rereading these.  
Incidentally, Richard Aleas is the pen name of Charles Ardai (cool anagram bro), founder of neo (and classic) noir imprint Hard Case Crime.

Little Girl Lost (2004) by Richard Aleas. Cover art by Robert McGinnis.

Have you ever bought a cool book, really liked it, traded it in for something else, and almost immediately regretted it?  I have, but Promethea smiled on me yesterday when I found this as a remainder for TWO DOLLARS.

Mar 1978, publ. Jove  HBJ
0-515-04506-3, $1.95, 316pp, pb, anth
Cover Rowena Morrill

I still have this— actually at hand without having to move (weird).  Looks like a first edition (no ISBN or UPC), i.e. worth maybe $1.95.  Who needs gold or bitcoin when you can invest in old paperbacks?
