Another Look: “The Lady Is Transparent”

Warning: Artistic inspiration drawn from book titles may vary.

The Lady Is Transparent, by “Carter Brown,” aka Alan Geoffrey Yates. Being offered this week are not just two paperback versions of this slender ghostbusting yarn, but four. On the left above is the 1962 Horowitz edition from Australia; on the right is the 1962 Signet edition with a cover illustration by Robert McGinnis.

On the left below is the 1967 Horowitz edition, while on the right is Signet’s 1968 version, again with McGinnis cover art.

She seems a bit more opaque to me in all four...less true of her garments, of course, on a "Carter Brown' cover.
