Special thanks to Stephen Gertz of Booktryst for his article on the publishing history of The Singular Exploits of Wonder Mom and Party Girl: “One Novel, Two First Editions. Different Book. Huh?” I couldn’t have asked for a more sympathetic reader for WMPG, as Gertz is an expert on drug novels. His 2008 nonfiction volume, Dope Menace: The Sensational World of Drug Paperbacks, 1900-1975 (Feral House) is a great read filled with amazing pulp fiction cover art.
