60s Pulp Covers

1966 Fawcett Gold Medal Book
I do love old pulp covers and while usually I focus on the 25c paperbacks of the 40s and 50s, I do have a few amusing covers from the 60s in my collection.  Today, I thought I'd share. Take a look at the cover of THE EVIL THAT MEN DO above. 
"They were the blue bloods of murder - the playboys and playgirls who added a new dimension to sex and sadism"
As, for DIG THAT CRAZY GRAVE (such a wonderful sixties title), I'm not even going to quote the hysterical tag line below, read it for yourself and snicker. 

1961 Fawcett Gold Medal Book
John D. MacDonald's THE END OF THE NIGHT is said to be a "...a smasharoo," by the Saturday Review. I've never heard a book described as a smasharoo before. I must integrate this term into my vocabulary.
