Paperback Originals

During the 1950s and early 1960s, at the same time he was writing award-wining short fiction, Cassill authored fifteen paperback novels, some of which have become 'cult classics'.  In reviewing these titles, Anthony Boucher of the New York Times wrote that "Cassill can combine paperback storytelling at its strongest with subtle literary quality."
