My name is Chris Ogle and I have been reading John D MacDonald ever since the 1960s. My parents bought and read everything he wrote and I would stand behind their chairs and read over their shoulders until we reached one of “those” parts and I would be sent packing. What ever happened to all those first edition paperbacks, including Weep For Me, which was the first JDM I ever read straight through? I’m not sure I really want to know.
Around 2002, I wondered how many different MacDonald covers there might be and thought the internet might be a good tool to find out. The answer is: lots. And lots. And I aim to find them all and in the darkness bind them.
If you have an interesting JDM cover, or one that I don’t have, you can send me a scan at christopher dot w dot ogle at gmail dot com. I’ll even give you credit!
