A German publisher of artsy pulp

I just stumbled on (thanks, Al!) the site of a German publisher Pulpmaster that specializes in translations of American, British and Australian hardboiled writers with cult values: Charles Willeford, Paul Cain, Derek Raymond, P.J. Wolfson... They also seem to have some German writers, the names of which I don't really recognize.

The style of the covers is pretty distinct - I don't know whether this kind of expressionist style would work anywhere else except in Germany.
