Blue Moon Books

Paperback reprint of "Frank" and I by Blue Moon Books, Inc., 1993.

Blue Moon Books, Inc. is a New York based publisher of erotic novels, especially of BDSM and spanking fiction. In 1986, Barney Rosset, former chief of Grove Press, started Blue Moon as a publisher of paperback erotica. Since 1987, the house has published reprints of classics from the Victorian and Edwardian era such as Venus School-Mistress, Or, Birchen Sports, The Merry Order of St. Bridget, The Yellow Room, "Frank" and I, Birch in the Boudoir (retitled as Beauty in the Birch), A Man with a Maid, the famous 1954 novel Story of O, as well as contemporary works by authors such as Richard Manton and Don Winslow.

Eve Howard, co-founder of Shadow Lane, a company that produces spanking videos, published her Shadow Lane book through Blue Moon as well. The book is a collection of spanking-related short stories.

"James Jennings" seems to be a publisher pseudonym used by Blue Moon Books for works by various authors.

Blue Moon Books is, or was, an imprint of Avalon Publishing Group which was acquired by Perseus Books Group.
