Paperback 876: Gold Medal s1166 (5th ptg, 1962)

Title: Lie Down, Killer
Author: Richard S. Prather
Cover artist: Barye Phillips

Estimated value: $6-10

Best things about this cover:

  • Good boy. Stay.
  • Dude's "Down Dog" sucks.
  • She has awesome Disappointment Face.
  • We've seen this book before, under different cover.

Best things about this back cover:

  • Aw, man, it's even got the same back cover copy as the last version
  • Apparently this is the story of a man who got a police badge tattooed on his penis, which then got infected. Edgy.
  • This book should've been called "Ask Margo" or "That Woman Gag."
