Ed Wood’s Sleaze Paperbacks

Sleaze-master general Ed Davis Wood Jr was responsible for some of the strangest pulp-fiction porn novels of the 50s and 60s. To call him eccentric is a bit of an understatement, his demise and eventual death at the hands of alcohol saw him die in poverty but along the way he wrote a series of oddball stories fusing ‘shock’ sex tales of biker chicks, horror orgies and surpressed desire in suburbia, with his own brand of psychology, sociology and philosophical argument. Boo-Hooray has tracked down some of his rarest and most collectable books and will be displaying them in the gallery from November. The covers alone worth the visit.
