The journey of Midwood Tower publishing was a long one -- from the early sleaze salad days of the late 1950s, when Midwood editors John Plunkett and staff made a fertile bed from which many writers and artists' careers bloomed -- Donald Westlake, Lawrence Block, Robert Silverberg, Hal Dresner, William Knoles, cover artist Isaac Paul Rader and others.  By the late 60s, the Midwood sleaze garden had gone to seed -- the cover graphics went from illustration art to mixed-photo and text to exclusively photographic and finally to exclusively text.  While the writers were still there -- as Midwood was situated in Manhattan with an abundance of young talents (and... hacks), but from year to year, Midwood distribution was down and declining.  The only way for Midwood to compete was to drop its magazine distribution circuit and partner with a porn-distribution network -- at this point, run by Star-Distributors, who were in fact Mafia..  This move demanded a cut in author's fees and crushed what little life remained in the editorial staff of Midwood Books.  As the late Gilbert Fox (who wrote for Midwood as Dallas Mayo) lamented, "The Mafia killed adult books."  Midwood hung on, producing books well into the late 1980s, distributed by Star Distributors.

How to order

This is a self-made website and while it might be extensive, it is not super-sophisticated.  The little buy icon icon takes you to a generic order form where you can type in the author, title, price, and indicate whether you would like to send me a check, money order or credit card payment.  I will confirm availability via e-mail, and once I've received payment, I'll ship the book.  If you have questions,  please don't hesitate to ask  via email.

Condition Grades

There's a standard bookseller vocabulary, with terms like Fine, Very Good, Good and Poor to assess condition (to see these terms defined, click on the link above).  Most of my books are in Very Good or better condition, and I tend to overemphasize their flaws so that any surprise is a pleasant one.  Feel free to ask questions, and if the book isn't in the condition described, you may return it for a full refund. 

Wants Lists

If I don't have the book you seek in stock, I will retain your book search in my wants files and email you when I do have a copy for sale. If you don't hear back from me immediately, that probably means I don't have a copy right now.  But fear not,  I keep extensive files and never stop looking....  so send me your request;  you've got nothing to lose!

Not listed?
Not everything is listed on-line. Let me know what you're looking for.

And, remember, the best way to check if I have a title or number is to simply ask. 
I'll send you a quote if I have the book in stock.
