Here’s the classy British hardcover of THE LIVING BOMB, followed by the American paperback cover, from Curtis, complete with fascinating word “megathon”. Typo or catchy portmanteau?
A lot of the Noons appeared first in hardcover in England, before their American paperback debuts.
If anyone out there can identify 1970s male model Ed Noon, I would love to track down any info about him.
Ed Noon gets around: here are two Bedroom Bolero covers from England and Brazil. Compare to the domestic paperback cover in the last post. If not for eBay, I wouldn’t even know these existed…
Ed Noon comes roaring back to the eBook world with the re-release of four classic adventures. First up: The Bedroom Bolero… Noon on the trail of a maniac with a taste for Ravel’s Bolero, and murder.
The latest from Ed Noon (@EdNoonPI). I walk down the mean streets and try not to get made mean, like the man said

My father hand-wrote this and posted it above his desk.
Ignore the coffee stains, and absorb the lesson. You chose this life. Whatever challenges it throws you, they’re the ones you’ve chosen to face.
ED NOON IS BACK!
Four new Ed Noon mysteries are now available on Amazon.com. By new, of course, I mean old… as Ed Noon, along with the rest of America, makes the transition from the 1950s to the 1960s, in books nine through twelve of the classic hard-boiled detective series.
First up is THE VOODOO MURDERS: Ed Noon goes up against the diabolical Count Calyspso. Sometimes you have a supervillain who just can’t be described any other way. Diabolical. This one takes Noon out of Manhattan and all the way to Port-Au-Prince.

As always, I’d like to remind you that a Kindle is not required to read these Amazon eBooks. They work on any number of computer and phone platforms.
Happy Michael Avallone’s Birthday!
On this day, in 1924, Michael Angelo Avallone, Jr. was born in Manhattan to a very large Italian family. He served in what was still called the United States Cavalry in World War Two (tanks, not horses) and went on to write roughly 200 published novels and countless short stories. He was also, as my sister and I can personally attest, the greatest father you could ever imagine. He passed away in 1999, but his voice lives on in his work.
And if you’d like to experience that unique, New York, 20th Century voice, again or for the first time… his Ed Noon detective novels are availble here:
And, for Halloween-season thrills, here’s something special: Michael Avallone’s legendary Tales of the Frightened stories, read by Vernon Wells, with incredible music by Eban Schletter. “Dim the lights, and play this record if you dare…”
