This has to be one of most bizarre MacDonald covers around. The depiction of Max Cady looks like Jack Nicholson in The Shining; I mean, this guy is terrifying. Love the missing, broken, and mismatched teeth. And that mustache just screams “Evil!” The girl has a first rate Fear Hand and her expression tells me that she unexpectedly sat down on a bag of frozen peas while not wearing any pants.

Update (8/22/2013): I just thought it looked like The Shining, but Steve Scott’s comment below prompted me to check it out and … well … you tell me:


Milk Carton

Have you seen me? I am a Russian omnibus titled (in Roman letters) Mys straha. Zoloto Makkeny, printed in 1993 by Ėrika. Mys straha means Cape Fear and Zoloto means Gold but I don’t know what Makkeny means.

    Well, this is obviously stolen directly from the famous photo of The Shining featuring Nicholson and Shelly Duvall. Love the missing teeth!

    I’ll go out on a limb and state that this has got to be THE most bizarre MacDonald cover ever.
