Cliff Corner (Bastei Verlag)

Ok, I finally admit it! I am a pulp novel junkie since my early childhood. Thanx dad! Not only do I read pulp novels from the USA that everybody knows like Tarzan, Conan, Buck Rodgers,... but also the lesser known ones like the Shadow, the Spider, Doc Strange, Lord Lister, G8....and all the others. And my addiction does not stop there it stretches even into the German pulp novel market better known in Germany as "Romanhefte" from publishers like Bastei, Kelter, Pabel... with heroes like G-man Jerry Cotton, Ghosthunter John Sinclair, Demonkiller Dorian Hunter, Professor Zamorra, Damona King, Lassister... covering everything from horror over phantasy over science-fiction over westerns and even, gulp, romance and heimat pulp novels! I read it all and collect it all! Silly me! So it is always nice to see a cover on a German romanheft with a motive from a Marisa Mell movie! (The G-man Jerry Cotton covers) This time it is from the Bastei Verlag series "Cliff Corner", a copy cat of the mega success G-man Jerry Cotton. Issue 105 from 1969 with title "Sterben Sie wohl, Mister Corner!" sports Marisa Mell as she appeared in the movie "New York Chiama Superdrago", a James Bond rip-off! (The Mystery of the Purple Dress) Now where did I put this issue of the series in my collection?
