Crow Editions - Canadian Paperbacks!

Crow editions were a short lived run published in Canada from 1949 to 1950 and used a vast amount of Digest covers by companies like Astro, Quarter, Carnival & Exotic and in most cases these covers were very badly redrawn for these Crow editions.

Phantom Books !

Phantom Books are highly sought after and have some of the greatest sleazy crime covers you'll see in Digest book collecting .

They were published in the USA with a short run and also in Australia with a very large run. I will list the entire USA run below but the the Australian list will take way too long so will just list the ones I own.
