Psst! Take a Gander Over There

I don’t usually spend a great deal of time in this blog touting The Rap Sheet’s affiliated sites, but perhaps I should do more such promotion, for there’s much else to see on those other pages.

Killer Covers, for instance, is now well into its crowd-pleasing accumulation of “two-fer” match-ups, “pairing … book covers that just seem to go together.” The newest entry in that series looks at vintage novels focusing on desire and death in the psychiatrist's office, while the previous one showcased temptresses on nearly identical spy novels. Killer Covers has also debuted a new regular feature about reused cover art. The opening installment cites Peter Cheyney’s The Sweetheart of the Razors (1962) as an example.

Meanwhile, The Rap Sheet’s YouTube collection of intros from crime-related TV shows and films has added the openings from the small-screen programs Missing, Profiler, In Plain Sight, The Girl from U.N.C.L.E., and Crazy Like a Fox, along with the introduction to that cringe-worthy 1979 Bert Convy teleflick, Ebony, Ivory and Jade. Once you finish watching those, the page offers literally hundreds of other videos to enjoy. Get your popcorn ready!
