Indexer Notes

The cover is based on the interior story of the same title, but the scene pictured does not match the story exactly--inside, Shayne's hair is a different colour, and she's trying to seduce the man in the yachting cap, rather than being caught by him.

Characters:
Linda; Bill Forest
Synopsis:
Linda has a psychological need for men’s affection, rooted in her childhood, when her father abandoned her mother. She meets Bill and falls in love for the first time, but when he is sent away on a long business trip, she relapses into her promiscuous ways, “man after man, date after date.” Bill returns and is angry when he hears of her behaviour, but changes his mind when she explains how she got “this terrible disease of mine.” They will be married and this will solve her need for love.
Keywords:
nymphomania

Indexer Notes

The term "nymphomania" is never used in the story but it is fairly clear that this is the disorder Linda is suffering from.
