The Twelve Dames of Christmas, 2018: #3

Celebrating this festive season with brassy bombshells.

Room and Dame, by Gerald Foster (Quarter Books, 1950). From the Vintage Paperback & Book Covers page on Facebook: “Word is that Gerald Foster was one of the many pseudonyms used by Peggy Dern, who we better know as Peggy Gaddis ... There is little revealed in the titles here as to why a male pen name may have been a market imperative. Perhaps it’s just to dilute this prolific author’s output and therefore not harm the bottom line. Much as we love to celebrate the covers … it’s called show business not show art.” Illustrator unidentified.
