Ava Gardner : "love is nothing" by Lee Server( Book )

30 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 1,648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first full-length biography of the farm girl from North Carolina who became a Hollywood goddess. It recreates a life of glamour, hedonism, and self-destruction, painted in bold colors on the canvas of big-studio Hollywood in the forties and fifties, exotic locations, the Rome of La Dolce Vita, and the Spain of bullfighters and dictators. Her stunning beauty and lack of inhibition led to a tumultuous private life and a long search for love, including marriages to Mickey Rooney, Artie Shaw and Frank Sinatra, and relationships with Hemingway, Howard Hughes, George C. Scott, and famous matador Mario Cabre.--From publisher description

Encyclopedia of pulp fiction writers by Lee Server( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Encyclopedia of Pulp Fiction Writers is the first reference book of its kind to bring together the famous and lesser-known writers who shaped popular literature. From best-selling authors to "underground" wordsmiths, more than 200 entries profile the inventors of such genres as the western, hardboiled detective novel, spy thriller, science fiction, horror, legal thriller, crime fiction, and romance novel." "Surveying brand-name legends and obscure or forgotten authors, each entry presents a brief biography and a list of the author's writing credits, including works written under pseudonyms. Complete with cross-references, an index, and a bibliography, and enhanced by photos of writers as well as by illustrations of vintage book and magazine covers, Encyclopedia of Pulp Fiction Writers is equally satisfying for historians, students, fans of popular fiction, and general readers."--Jacket

At the turn of the century, America saw the rapid rise of a new literary phenomenon: the pulps.

Over my dead body : the sensational age of the American paperpack, 1945-1955 by Lee Server( Book )

9 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American paperback went through a brief but gloriously subversive era during the 40's and 50's. Publishers wooed millions of war-hardened readers with inexpensive, pocket-sized paperbacks full of sex and violence. Lurid covers with square-jawed men and scantily clad women in perilous situations helped to sell these sensation-packed tales of hard-boiled private eyes, deadly dames, sex fiends, beatniks, and juvenile delinquents. Lee Server, author of the acclaimed Danger Is My Business (Chronicle Books), recounts this unique period of American publishing and describes the authors, artists, and editors who made it so memorable. Complete with over 100 colorful photographs of rare covers, plus tips on how to collect vintage paperbacks, Over My Dead Body is not only a great read, but also a useful resource for collectors and lovers of American pop culture
