E. Haldeman-Julius booklets were published for 50 plus years. The Little Blue Books were a wonderful way to carry around a short read for when waiting in line or at the train station for the next train etc... Small enough to fit in a pocket or purse, the little books became a huge and popular success quickly. Their content ranged from fiction to non-fiction and short stories to essays. Their history also included the publishing of political essays and the inclusion of such subjects as socialism, atheism, and frank treatment of sexuality often lending them to controversy.
