The Caged Canary

Since my last faux-vintage paperback book cover was set in the bitter cold of the frozen tundra, I thought I'd go the other way this one, which from its looks seems to be set in some always-sunny, always-hot, always-humid location, with lots of people going around half-dressed, dripping with sweat.

The plot for this one--featuring title and author made up by me--is pretty standard film noir stuff: a beautiful woman, a mean and cruel sugar daddy, and the inevitable, aforementioned sweaty young hunk who tries to get the girl away from the old man, with disastrous and violent results.

Hey Rob,

I just wanted you to know that I really love these faux paperback covers. They're awesome. I grew up on Robert McGinnis's stuff and these crackle.

Wow, thank you for the kind words. I'm humbled.

McGinnis = genius!
