100 Years of Travis McGee’s “Father”

Should this have escaped your radar somehow, listen up: July 24 will mark the passage of a full century since John D. MacDonald—the Florida author Stephen King once called “the great entertainer of our age, and a mesmerizing storyteller”—was born in Pennsylvania.

By way of celebrating, our sister blog Killer Covers has just begun two weeks of posting the fronts from assorted MacDonald works. In addition to editions of his famous Travis McGee novels, you can expect to see the façades from a number of his standalone tales of crime, suspense, and science fiction. Today’s opening post looks back at MacDonald’s first published novel, 1950’s The Brass Cupcake.
