I must guess that Nitey-Nite books were another of the early predeccessors to the First Niter/After Hours, etc book lines put out by Stanley Malkin and Eddie Mishkin.
The moonface logo which in conjunction with the name "Nitey-Nite" actually makes more sense than "First Niter" or "After Hours," and of course, the cover work by Bilbrew and the text by Paul Hugo Little.
I don't know why these books did not proliferate as a series, but it probably has to do with distribution issues. There is no distributor information on the books, so they may have been produced elsewhere and offered to distributors but at too high a cost to make them profitable. Instead the distributors re-worked the set-up to print and bind the books themselves, shave some pennies and find a decent profit margin to go forward with a new brand/series known as First Niters and its following lines. This is just a theory.
Be sure to cross-check the "Writers" and "Artists" and "Themes" areas also!
New books will be added as they become available.
Here's the current stock/selection of Nitey-Nite Books. Enjoy!
How to order
This is a self-made website and while
it might be extensive, it is not super-sophisticated. The little
icon takes you to a generic order form where you can type in the author,
title, price, and indicate whether you would like to send me a check, money order or
credit card payment. I will confirm availability via e-mail, and once
I've received payment, I'll ship the book.
If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask via
There's a standard bookseller vocabulary, with terms like
Very Good, Good and Poor to assess condition (to see these terms
defined, click on the link above). Most of my books are in Very Good
or better condition, and I tend to overemphasize their flaws so that any
surprise is a pleasant one. Feel free to ask questions, and if the
book isn't in the condition described, you may return it for a full refund.
If I don't have the book you seek in stock, I will retain
your book search in my wants files and email you when I do
have a copy for sale. If you don't hear back from me immediately, that
probably means I don't have a copy right now. But fear not,
I keep extensive files and never stop looking.... so send
me your request; you've got nothing to lose!
Not everything is listed on-line. Let me know what you're looking for.
