Pulpy PEPLUM books

Here are covers of some vintage pulpy novels with a PEP slant. These vintage covers are always colorful, cool and the promise of things sexy.

I never heard of the TROS series before looking for these covers. I'm thinking of buying the first book. Sounds like fun. Anyone out there read them and would you recommend it?

I had to re-read this title a couple of times before realizing it was what I was reading

Sounds like a PEPLUM film. Hmm, in fact there is a film called THE PAGAN QUEEN

The film that this reminds me of is THE VIKING QUEEN by HAMMER. Could there have been another film similar called the THE PAGAN QUEEN?

I read all the Tros books as a kid. You should try them, they're straight up peplum novels as I recall. Good reads, but I haven't resampled them as an adult.
