The New York Times of Sunday, May 6, 2007, on a writer of pulp fiction:

His early novels, written in two weeks or less, were published in double-decker Ace paperbacks that included two books in one, with a lurid cover for each. “If the Holy Bible was printed as an Ace Double,” an editor once remarked, “it would be cut down to two 20,000-word halves with the Old Testament retitled as ‘Master of Chaos’ and the New Testament as ‘The Thing With Three Souls.'”

Epigraph for Part One:

Ours is a very gutsy religion, Cullinane.

James A. Michener

Lurid cover:
The Pussycat

The Pussycat of the film 'The Owl and the Pussycat,' starring Barbra Streisand

Epigraph for Part Two:

Beware lest you believe that you can comprehend the Incomprehensible….

Saint Bonaventure

Lurid cover:
The Owl

Diamond Theory cover, said to resemble Proginoskes in 'A Wind in the Door'
