Pulp Fiction Thursday: I Killed Stalin

Time for some a Cold War revenge fantasy pulp. The first cover  seems to have very little to do with the title and the second variation gets the year wrong: Uncle Joe died in 1953. Or did the author extend his life to kill him? The mind reels.

I used Mr. Google and learned that I Killed Stalin was published in 1951, which makes this a near future sci-fi pulp. My mind is still reeling.
