Kelly's Big Score: Leaning Tower o' Paperbacks Edition

So today was the annual L.A. Vintage Paperback Show. I had a blast and came home with:

The Scarf - Robert Bloch
The Beast that Shouted Love at the Heart of the World and No Doors, No Windows - Harlan Ellison
Swamp Sister - Robert Edmond Alter
Seconds - David Ely
The Screaming Mimi - Frederic Brown
Nero, Butcher of Rome - Ernst Eckstein
The Drowner - John D. MacDonald
Lilith - George MacDonald
The Light at the End - John Skipp and Craig Spector
The Magic Christian - Terry Southern
The Butterfly - James M. Cain
Fireworks - Jim Thompson
The Terrorizers, The Annihilators, The Threateners, The Demolishers - Donald Hamilton (only three more books and I'll have the entire Matt Helm series!)

And lastly, a bunch of gothics, all featuring covers with illustrations of women in their nighties fleeing creepy old houses, with titles like The Rose Window and The House on Rainbow Leap.
