"For Steven Brower, the author of Breathless Homicidal Slime Mutants
(Universe Publishing) - a book that celebrates the art of the paperback - there is nothing quite like printed matter. This book chronicles the history of the paperback format and highlights the designers behind the tantalizing cover art that became its signature selling point." ~Nylon
"Packed with worthy representatives from numerous genres, Breathless Homicidal Slime Mutants
is a visual and visceral feast that provides a compelling introduction to the history of pop art in the 20th century." ~PopMatters.com
