This lovely 302 page price guide lists values in Good, Very Good and Fine condition for almost four thousand of the most collectible and most valuable key American mass-market paperbacks and shows over 1,000 covers in startling, gorgeous full-color.

It covers each genre by chapter, with chapters on Fantastic Fiction (SF/F/H), Mysteries & Crime, Westerns, Movie and TV tie-ins, Sex and Social Issues, and more! There is a listing for pseudonyms, recommended dealers, book shows, an index of authors and more!
