Nurse gothics?
#1
I never thought much about this before, but I suddenly noticed that there seems to have been a trend in publishing during the '60s and '70s that amounted to a sub-genre in the pulp gothics industry, and that is nurse gothics (see attachments below for cover image examples).

Have any of you read any of these? I think I might have read one or two but didn't take especial notice that the heroine was a nurse. Of course it would be inevitable to have nurse protagonists (especially in contemporary-setting gothics) since there are only so many professions a young woman could be in that would logically put her into the locale of a strange house or mansion. In the old gothics the heroines were frequently governesses; in the modern ones they're almost always secretaries, or in this case nurses.

Any comments on this sub-genre?
