Happy Birthday, to the Dime Novel!

The Writer's Alamanc: "It was on this day in 1860, exactly 150 years ago, that the first 'dime novel' was published: Malaeska, the Indian Wife of the White Hunter, by Ann S. Stephens."

I've read a collection of dime novels years ago.

Ever since I've wanted to read some "Penny Dreadfuls."

What were they called when they cost a nickel?

Well, you guys know how it is. One to read, one signed copy to display.
