As the original 1950's book was promoted: The breakneck story of a wild breed of men - and their thrill hungry women. The tearing shriek of metal against metal, the stink of gasoline fumes, the sweat of men working all night in the pit, and the cheap perfume of the girls who hang around the track looking for kicks...this is the souped up world of the stock car racer. And this the story of Ace Jones, a man whose flesh and soul have prectically grown to the battered iron of the heaps that are his whole life - and of a girl named Sandy, who sees in him the same fever that burned out her husband, the same wild streak that made her love him... Henry Gregor Felsen, iconic '50's author, published Fever Heat under the pseudonym, Angus Vicker. Unlike his teen novels, Hot Rod, Street Rod, Rag Top, Crash Club, and Road Rocket, Fever Heat was an adult story, written in the setting of a small town and the locals who raced on Saturday nights. Felsen has been referred to as the Granddaddy of Street Rodding as his books sold millions of copies, and reached readers all over the world. His fans find his older copies to be collectibles, but his books were so widely read that the condition is often poor. At the request of fans, his daughter, Holly Welch, and son, Dan, have republished the ten car novels in hopes of providing a rembrance for those who read the books as teens, and a picture of teens, their friends, their girls, and the cars that consumed them.
