Stephen Gresham Born Today, 1947

According to his informative website, author Stephen Gresham wasn't thrilled with these Zebra paperback covers for his novels. Can't say I blame him, but looking back on 'em today, hoo boy. Awesome.

Take two: Read a couple of his books back in the day. Not as bad as everyone might think. I personally enjoyed RUNAWAY, a cross between HENSEL & GRETEL and LORD OF THE FLIES.

I recently read "Dew Claws"..... uh. Pretty boring. His writing is okay but there was literally no suspense or scares in the book. Would have been an okay YA novel, I suppose. I own "Blood Wings", so I'll give him another chance at some point.

It's been a while since I read him, but I always liked Stephen Gresham's stuff pretty well. No huge classics or anything, but nicely done and entertaining, one of the better Zebra authors. I used to buy his books whenever I came across one... I should probably dig one of those out and give him a try again soon. Glad to see he's still working.

I was happy to find his blog and that it was so complete and current. So many of these '80s authors simply disappeared.
