Canadian Best-Seller Library Part V

In the last post in this series I listed all 46 titles published by McClelland & Stewart in their 1960s Canadian Best-Seller Library series. Here are the 15 fiction titles, a largely undistinguished lot. Two hockey novels, yet another Leacock anthology, and a mixed bag of historical and adventure titles. The only one I've read is Mordecai Richler's The Incomparable Atuk. The other two I might read are William Weintraub's first novel Why Rock the Boat? (1961) and another one from 1961 - Splash One Tiger. Although the blurb is not a help - "... the skilled and courageous pilot who lost his baby-fat in the Spitfires."
