Operator 5: The Corinth Editions
Following up on my Forgotten Books post on the Freeway Press Operator 5 reprints from 1974, here are two of the eight volumes issued by Corinth way back in 1966. Like the Freeway books, these are the work of Frederick C. Davis, when Jimmy Christopher (Secret Service Operator #5) was truly a spy rather than the freedom fighter he became during Emile C. Tepperman's Purple Invasion. The odd cover designs on these seem to reflect a blend of 007 and Flower Power motifs.
