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.
