Since 1998, has been a resting spot for book reviews, music reviews, news about town (especially NYC), and stories — because everyone has a story; actually many stories.

Lou Vincent (aka Paperbacklou, LouV)

Editor, Nom de Plume

Used to talk to himself in shower a lot before forming the paperbacknovel set of sites, and before the advent of Twitter. BS degree in Engineering and a Masters in Journalism. Former Shelter Survey Technician for FEMA, surveying “public and commercial buildings for their applicability as Fallout Shelters in case of a natural or ‘man made’ disaster”. Was once thrown out of “Save the River” office by Abbie Hoffman (who ps was a great guy) attempting to survey his building for Fallout Shelter status. Mike Bloomberg once made a joke at his expense on Staten Island Ferry, saying out loud “He’s the only one working” as Lou cordially waved off his handshake as he was too busy on his laptop. In pursuit of truth, justice, and the other side of the story.

Dick Laresch (aka Dicky La)

Hall of Fame

Dick was inducted into the Hall of Fame as key contributor to the site in its early years. Dick has retired from writing on paperbacknovel, to take a role as an Agent Provocateur. We send him an email every 9 months or so to see if he’s still interested in writing here.
