Spy Pulp: Eric Ambler

Perhaps to call Eric Ambler a “pulp” writer is a stretch. But his work definitely contains pulp elements and what struck me most while reading his novel A Kind of Anger was not between the pages but what surrounded them on that delicious cover. Fontana books released a series of Ambler spy thrillers with a consistent theme in the cover design. These are definitely “pulp”.
