Today’s cover has a lot of question marks. I know almost nothing about it, not even where I got this image. There aren’t many JDM books consisting of a single short story, or novella in this case, but this is one. Of course you know, or should know, that Linda can be found in Border Town Girl (sometimes known as Five Star Fugitive in the UK). The low resolution cover shows all of the main elements of the story: Linda, a rifle, something or other in the sights of a scope, a station wagon which tells you that it all takes place on vacation, and dear god what is going on in the upper left corner? The beach house, obviously, and it’s all yellow so maybe it’s sand, and a blob at the bottom that might be a body, a caricature of Ringo Starr, a vase that turns into two faces, or a Georgia O’Keeffe painting.

Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am a hardcover Russian edition of Deadly Welcome, titled Добро пожаловать – вас ждет смерть! (Welcome – You Will Die!), printed in 1994 by INIS.
