1970 was a high water mark for the Ed Noon series: the books were available in multiple languages, all over the world. Here’s the Italian cover of THE DOOMSDAY BAG, with a new title that seems to echo the (at the time) recent Bond movie ON HER MAJESTY’S SECRET SERVICE. The art is clearly influenced by the American cover, seen below.

Everything old is new again: today we’re rolling out four more Noon adventures on Kindle. You can download them to pretty much any one of your space age gizmos, so no excuses. These four move Our Hero from the Kennedy era into the late sixties: spies, hippies, assassination, nuclear terrorism, and kinky sex. Ah, the Good Old Bad Old Days…

I’ve been looking through 1960s era Ed Noon paperbacks for quotes, for the next Amazon.com release.
Some of the US paperbacks were originally published in Britain, as hardcovers. Which I guess explains why Ed Noon uses the words “cheque, programme” and “colour” in these all-American pulp novels…
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.
