Rader Love: “Thorn of Evil”

Part of a month-long celebration of artist Paul Rader’s work.

Thorn of Evil, by Max Collier (Midwood, 1962). I’m not sure whether “Max Collier” was the byline of a single author, or another Midwood “house name” shared by multiple writers. But in either event, Collier is credited with having composed at least half a dozen soft-core porn titles for that publisher during the early 1960s. Thorn of Evil was the first of those to see print, but it’s not the last Collier work we’ll consider in this series.

Ha! Yes, the "garden"

Loved your thoughts in the article on Ed Gorman's passing. Nice cover site.
