SF sleaze sale: Complete set of 11 Beacon Galaxy novels from ca. 1960

A bookseller from Ontario is selling a complete set of Beacon Galaxy Science Fiction Novels from the late 1950s and early 1960s for $725 on AbeBooks, the used and rare book site. A subset of the larger 46-novel set published by Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine, these eleven novels were published under the Beacon Books imprint from 1959 to 1961. All of the novels have lurid cover art and, in some cases, racy passages were inserted in the text. Among the titles: Sin in Space: An Expose of the Scarlet Planet (1961; formerly Outpost Mars, 1952), written by Cyril Judd, a joint pseudonym used by Cyril M. Kornbluth and Judith Merril.
