Canadian Best-Seller Library Part II

The recent news about the end of McClelland & Stewart (now owned by the largest book publisher in the world) started me thinking about early M&S paperback series. I introduced the 46 book Canadian Best-Seller Library series in part I. Only fourteen of the books are fiction but one of them had been published by Harlequin Books.

Rink Rat by Don MacMillan was first published in 1949 by J.M. Dent (Canada). Harlequin's edition came out in 1950 and was reprinted in 1951 and 1957, the second time with the new number 408 but same cover.

Here is a connection to Rink Rat by the author of a recent Harlequin novel about hockey.
