The Lady from L.U.S.T. series, of which Kiss My Assassin is one of eighteen entries, featured the character Eve Drum, codenamed Oh Oh Sex, as an operative for the League of Undercover Spies and Terrorists. Apparently spies and terrorists realized they weren't so different after all, and if they can come together there's hope for the rest of us. Drum was expert at safe cracking, knifework, shooting, and martial arts, but most of all sex, the most effective tool in her box.
We think she's one of the better James Bond inspired characters, but really there are so many it's hard to choose. In this adventure she thwarts neo-nazis trying to take over the world. We might be able to use her help in 2016, the way things are going. Kiss My Assassin first appeared in 1968 with Paul Rader cover art (just to the right, and notice the change of entry number), then above in 1973 with cover work by unknown.

There’s a saying that the world is a book and those who don’t travel read only one page. But on the other hand, if you stay home the danger and mayhem at least happen in your own language. Which is the better course? Pulp authors seem to think it’s the latter. Above and below are twenty-one vintage bookcovers for fiction set in various cities around the globe. The writing spans genres such as romance, sleaze, horror, and espionage, and the art is by Mitchell Hooks, Barye Phillips, Robert McGinnis, et. al. Thanks to all the original uploaders.
