Book #8 in The Satin Slippers series. ~~~ From Wikipedia: In 1970, Fawcett acquired Popular Library from Perfect Film & Chemical Corporation and renamed it Fawcett Books. Fawcett Publications was bought by CBS Publications in 1977 for $50 million. When Ballantine Books (a division of Random House) acquired Fawcett Books in 1982 while Popular was sold to to Warner Communications, it inherited a mass market paperback list with such authors as William Bernhardt, Amanda Cross, Stephen Frey, P. D. James, William X. Kienzle, Anne Perry, Daniel Silva, Peter Straub and Margaret Truman. Fawcett also became the official home of Ballantine's mass market mystery program. The imprint stopped being used on new books at the beginning of the 21st century. ~~~ In 1987, Fawcett senior executive Peter G. Diamandis and a management team negotiated a $650 million leveraged buy out, then sold six titles to raise $250 million. Diamandis Communications, Inc. was then sold the next year to Hachette Publications for $712 million. ~~~ An annual four-day festival held in Robbinsdale, Minnesota is Whiz Bang Days. Robbinsdale's city celebration, recalling the glory years of Fawcett Publications, began during World War II. The original Fawcett Publications building, which remained standing in Robbinsdale for decades, was torn down during the mid-1990s. It was located at what is now the terrace for the restaurant La Cucina di Nonna Rosa's, at 4168 West Broadway Avenue.
