The History of Greenleaf Classics Pet Books




Greenleaf Classics was founded by William Hamling, a former editor of Amazing Stories magazine. Hamling saw an opportunity to capitalize on the growing demand for adult paperbacks in the post-war era. He started with publishing science fiction and fantasy stories with erotic elements under the imprint Nightstand Books. Soon, he expanded his catalog to include other genres such as mystery, crime, spy, adventure, historical, and romance.


One of his most successful imprints was Pet Book, which debuted in 1968. The Pet Book series focused on stories involving incest, bestiality, bondage, rape, and other taboo topics. The books were written by various authors, some using pseudonyms, under the editorial direction of Earl Kemp. Kemp was a close associate of Hamling and a prominent figure in the science fiction fandom. He also designed many of the covers for the books, which featured provocative images of women and animals.


The Pet Book series was very popular among readers who were looking for something more extreme and daring than the mainstream erotica. The books sold well despite being banned in many states and countries. However, they also attracted the attention of the authorities who considered them obscene and illegal. In 1971, Hamling and Kemp were indicted by a federal grand jury for violating obscenity laws. They were convicted in 1973 and sentenced to one year in prison each. They appealed their case all the way to the Supreme Court, but lost in 1976.


After their conviction, Hamling sold his publishing business to American Art Enterprises (AAE), which continued to publish Greenleaf Classics books under various imprints until 1990. The Pet Book series was discontinued in 1975, after producing 353 titles. Some of the titles were reprinted by AAE under different imprints and series, such as Animal Lovers, Animal Passion, and Animal Sex.


The Appeal of Greenleaf Classics Pet Books




Greenleaf Classics Pet Books are appealing to readers for various reasons. Some of the reasons are:



  • They reflect the sexual fantasies and taboos of their era. The Pet Book series was published during a time of social and cultural change in the US and the world. The sexual revolution, the feminist movement, the civil rights movement, the Vietnam War, the hippie counterculture, and the drug culture all influenced the attitudes and behaviors of people towards sex and morality. The Pet Book series tapped into the hidden desires and fears of many readers who were curious about or dissatisfied with the conventional norms and expectations of sexuality. The books explored themes such as incest, bestiality, bondage, rape, domination, submission, humiliation, degradation, sadism, masochism, voyeurism, exhibitionism, group sex, interracial sex, homosexual sex, and more. The books also challenged the stereotypes and roles of gender, race, class, and power in society.



  • They are some of the most controversial and sought-after titles in the erotic fiction market. The Pet Book series was one of the most daring and provocative series ever published by Greenleaf Classics or any other publisher. The books were banned in many states and countries for being obscene and illegal. They were also subject to raids, seizures, lawsuits, and prosecutions by the authorities who tried to suppress them. Many of the books were destroyed or confiscated by the police or customs agents. As a result, the books became rare and valuable among collectors and fans who wanted to own a piece of history and controversy. Some of the most notorious and desirable titles in the series include: PB-101: My Sister's Dog by John Dexter; PB-121: Daddy's Girl by J.X. Williams; PB-131: My Mother's Stallion by Don Elliott; PB-151: My Brother's Goat by John Dexter; PB-201: My Daughter's Pony by J.X. Williams; PB-211: My Son's Snake by Don Elliott; PB-251: My Wife's Ape by John Dexter; PB-301: My Husband's Pig by J.X. Williams; PB-321: My Sister's Elephant by Don Elliott; PB-353: My Mother's Gorilla by John Dexter.



  • They compare favorably to other erotic fiction genres and publishers. The Pet Book series was not the only series that dealt with taboo topics in erotic fiction. There were other publishers such as Liverpool Library Press, Olympia Press, Blue Moon Books, Masquerade Books, Nexus Books, and more that published similar or even more extreme books. However, Greenleaf Classics Pet Books had some advantages over their competitors. They had a larger and more diverse catalog of titles and authors. They had a higher quality of writing and editing. They had a more consistent and recognizable style and format. They had a more attractive and distinctive cover art. They had a more loyal and enthusiastic fan base.
