The mystique surrounding Edward Davis Wood Jr.'s career as an author of pornographic pulp fiction is legendary. He wrote under a variety of pseudonyms, books were published and re-published under different titles, and occasionally under different author names. Multiple authors would share the same pseudonym, and the companies that published the titles weren't the kind of operations that kept any kind of records, nor paid royalties, nor really existed at all, as publishers. Ed Wood's sleaze fiction is also as strange, idiosyncratic and out of step with his times and mores as his infamous movies. Wood often spliced his pornography with lengthy philosophical, sociological and psychological discourse, penning first-person narratives of life as a transvestite in 1950s America in the damaged and anguished voice of a desperate, soul-searching alcoholic. He died in 1978 of an alcohol-induced heart attack.

Ed Wood's Sleaze Paperbacks is prefaced by a poetic homage to Wood by Ricky Luanda, member of the legendary band Chain Gang, and dedicated collector of pulp fiction. Limited edition of 750 copies.
