The Life And Loves Of A Drug Addict!
He bought forgetfulness… But a dead blonde woke him up!
From the back:
Ex-Musician Ray Stone will do anything for a shot of heroin—steal, swindle, grovel, even forget at times that he’s ever been a human being. But there’s one thing he draws the line at—murder! Then one morning he wakes up to find a beautiful dead blonde stretched out beside him, a bullet wound in her chest. Ray’s dope-ridden mind works feverishly as he tries to persuade himself he has not turned murderer, too. in his neverending quest for heroin. But the more he remembers, the more the terror grows. Out of a fog of painful recollection, slowly Ray begins to reconstruct his actions over the past twelve hours in the hope of ferreting out the truth behind the brutal murder. But those twelve hours have been lost in world of drugged unreality, have become nothing more than a long, violent nightmare in which he cannot always determine what is real and what is only his own excited imaginings, now that he has been suddenly and torturously cuoff from his regular supply of heroin. THE EVIL SLEEP! is not a nice novel—but its a vivid, revealing and disturbing novel—one that will stay with you long after you have put it down, a story that rips the lid off a world of sickness and despair that most people fortunately remain in ignorance of throughout their lifetimes. You will wander through a horrible dream-world with discomfort and dismay—revulsion too, perhaps—but above all, with compassion, as the author brilliantly describes Ray Stone’s struggle against illness in his fight to find out what, during his long nightmare, really did happen—in order to prove what did not!
Joyce Taylor Would Try Anything — If It Promised A Thrill!
She Fell Prey To The Foulest Of Rackets!
From the back:
What Fatal Weakness Makes Joyce Taylor A Dope Slave…?
…Is she deliberately sinful? Does she consciously court depravity? Or is she, rather a helpless victim of psychological pressures forcing her to follow paths of evil despite herself? These are the questions probed in this sensitive and daring novel. For the first time in popular fiction, it frankly comes to grips with the most shameful scandal of our day—drug addiction among teenagers Here is a pitiless study of a young girl enslaved by the dope habit, revealing her every thought… every facet of her warped life… every nuance of her disturbed relations with other high school kids, with older men. With her we explore that strange demi-world of jazz musicians, among whom marijuana is as commonplace as tobacco. We watch Joyce turn to still more violent drugs—the “hard stuff’—resorting to every vile device, trading her very soul, for money with which to pay the dope “pusher”… This extraordinarily valid book does more than reaffirm the reputation of the author as a literary stylist and a shrewd, blunt commentator on our social scene. It tells the real story behind, the lurid newspaper headlines—the crime investigations—the reports official and unofficial—all screaming of the spread of dope addiction among children today!

A Four Sided Triangle is made up of four parts, two young husbands and two young wives, each with their secret cravings and compulsions.
SUE… the totally amoral nymphomaniac who coaxed the others into a game of switch partners so she could show them the depths of their hidden hungers.
NICK… tormented by his wife’s promiscuity and his inability to satisfy her, driven to a point of madness where he must resort to rape in order to prove his manhood.
JESSICA… startled by the fury of her own abandon, dazed by the delight she finds in the arms of another female, condemned by the insatiable force of her long-suppressed yearnings.
ALEX… a broadminded male in every sense of the word, more than willing to share his wife with his friends as long as it was a share-and-share-alike agreement.
Sex, men and money were the signposts on the road to the ultimate kick
