Spanish Jeopardy

"Rex Parker" calls himself "The 55th Greatest Crossword Puzzle Solver In The Universe!" He also collects and writes about vintage paperback books, in his blog, Pop Sensation.

Naturally, this book's cover caught my eye: Jeopardy Is My Job, by Stephen Marlowe.

Hardball detective fiction writer, Stephen Marlowe (must be Phillip's brother), writes about hardball detective, Chester Drum, and his hardball trip to Spain, where he tracks down hardball (highball?) drinkers. Its a good thing he has a map to help him out.

If you enjoy bad book covers, then you should also check out Judge a Book by its Cover.

Rex must have rocked this year's tournament! He used to be 183rd or something.

Awesome link to Judge a Book...

Is "Rex" his real name? I put it in quotes because it sounded like some kind of pseudonym... like something out of a comic strip... (Rex Morgan, Judge Parker)

I'm just going to assume that you know about Dell "mapbacks," then. . .

"Rex" is a total pseudonym. My real name: Frederico!
