Better small Tiki than no Tiki





Oh my! I'm in love with that cover... but that isn't the English title is it? I've been diddybopping around ManyBooks.net for a PDF of this book (for those not in the know, ManyBooks has many pulp novels available for free, legal download WITH cover art, ex: The Moon and Sixpence from upthread
http://www.manybooks.net/titles/maughamwetext95moona10.html).

Could someone let me know what the English title of "Soberbia" is?

ETA: Whoops, clever Googling later and I discover that it IS The Moon and Sixpence. I'll just slink off in this corner and read it now...

The British and Commonwealth edition of "Long Pig" (the US edition appeared earlier in this thread):



Back cover:



Back cover detail:



The story is set in the Fiji Islands in 1800. The copy I have also has "Lautoka Fiji 1961" handwritten on the inside cover...

There isn't a tiki, and the Amazon isn't Polynesia, but the headhunter cover art is pretty cool.

Just got done making the rounds of ebay, only to discover what this thread already knew - There are no, or practically no pulp sleaze "Good girl art" covers that also feature a tiki! This blows my mind, frankly. The subjects seem made for each other: fantastic gods and fantasy women, the tropical sex fantasy that is still a part of our culture, but no tiki covers. Wow. In any case, doing a search for "sleaze" in the antiquarian book category is a fantastic way to kill time. I dare you to read down one page of titles and not at least chuckle!
