Shere Hite’s Hong Kong Caper

Posted: October 29th, 2020 | No Comments »

I’ve blogged before about Alan Geoffrey Yates (aka Carter Brown), an English-born, Australian pulp writer who wrote in numerous genres under numerous non-de-plumes. He was the author of the 1962 pulp novel Hong Kong Caper (which isn’t that bad). What I hadn’t realised, till i read Michael Callahan’s piece on the recently deceased Shere Hite in Air Mail this week, was that the author and ‘sexologist’ Shere Hite was the model for so many Carter Brown covers drawn by the famous pulp artist Robert McGinnis. And I reckon, looking at those covers again in light of this information, that Hite was the insirpation for this cover for Hong Kong Caper.
