Family Secrets

New York: Bee-Line Book [Beeline], 1972. First Edition, first printing, a paperback original. Copy belonging to the author, Andrew J. Offutt, with his "Funny Farm" rubber-stamp on the first page, and annotations to the checklists at the rear, noting his other book titles. From the author's estate.

An Orpheus Classic title about a family engaged in copious sexual fetishes.

Offutt had gained some success writing adult novels in the 1960s and 1970s, using pseudonyms like John Cleve, Turk Winter, and Jeff Woods, and began to write legitimate science fiction and fantasy novels in the mid 1970s. He wrote and edited several fantasy series, including "Thieves' World" titles and "Swords Against Darkness." The "Spaceways" series (nineteen books, 1982-1984), along with his "Crusader" series published by Dell and Grove, bridges the gap between his two best literary genres: erotica and fantasy.

Very Good in illustrated wrappers. Spine moderately toned, light creasing and rubbing. Uncommon.
