0049 The Drowner

July 18, 2011

  • Title: The Drowner
  • Language: English
  • Country: USA
  • Format: Paperback
  • Year: 1963
  • Publisher: Fawcett
  • Collection: Gold Medal
  • Collection #: K1302
  • Cover Price: $0.40
  • Cover Artist: Stanley Zuckerberg


Here’s another kickass cover! This time it’s the first edition of The Drowner. Stanley Zuckerberg did such a great job here, that every single subsequent American edition used it, and four foreign editions had their own artists recreate it, sometimes in interesting ways. This is one of my favorite covers.

The story isn’t bad either. I won’t give away the twist ending (like the UK Pan edition does with its cover art — don’t worry, you’ll see it eventually), but I heartily recommend that you read this book.
