Bodies in Bedlam by Richard S. Prather

Shell Scott was up to his neck in guns, girls and gore. Constanza Carmocha was unarmed–that is, she didn’t have a gun. She didn’t need one, either. She had all the weapons that have ruined men from time immemorial–or time immoral. One man had had his throat slit because of her, another was going to die. She was surrounded by a guy who resembled a shaved ape and looked as though he could pick himself up with one hand. But the hand isn’t always quicker than the private eye, and as sure as my name’s Shell Scott, I’ll get to the bottom of this affair with the deadly dame.

Please–please take me home with you”. His arms encircled her … “Sure, why not? Why the devil not? ” He leaned forward, gave the taxi-driver his address and turned to pull Viola’s trembling body hard against him. He covered her lips with his … Viola Barton thought that she could throw away her heart, deny her son his true father, and make a life for herself without the ecstasy of a young man’s love.

The Star Beast and Other Stories by Damon Knight

The Star Beast and Other Stories by Damon Knight

Six vintage stories from Science Fiction Grand Master, Damon Knight. First published in the 1940s & 50s, these stories show his diversity from galactic adventure to nihilistic philosophy.

Doorway to Kal-Jmar–Two men had died before Syme Rector’s guns to give him the key to the ancient city of Kal-Jmar–a city of untold wealth, and of robots that made desires instant commands.

The Beachcomber–Alice saw the Beachcomber as a glorious hunk of man; Maxwell saw him as a super being from the future. Tragically, he was both!

Hostage For A Hood by Lionel White

 

Every minute she had was borrowed, and every second ticked off the time for murder. Joyce was driving along the deserted avenue. Just ahead on a side street, Cribbins checked the second hand of his watch for the last time. He swung the heavy Cadillac around the corner. He had a rendezvous with an armored car and a quar¬ter of a million dollars; he had a tommy gun to make sure it all went off smoothly. Everything was timed, everything was planned down to the most insignificant detail–except for Joyce Sherwood and her eight-year-old Chevy, which crashed deep into the side, of Cribbins’ stolen car. That’s how they met–the house¬wife and the hoods. And terror took over!

Jobo by Henry Slesar

Jobo by Henry Slesar

 

Jobo was picked upon and teased. Not like any other child in the deep woods of Tennessee. They called him a freak, but he was strong and could whoop anybody, if forced to do so. Unfortunately, he may be forced to do so. Meanwhile, John Tilletson was on an expedition of lifetime–to Easter Island! All to prove his unorthodox hypothesis that the giant head sculptures of Easter Island have an extraterrestrial origin. Soon Jobo and John Tilletson’s worlds would collide.

New Releases – Donald E. Westlake, Rex Stout, C.M. Kornbluth and Judith Merril

First up for our new releases is our first “erotica” title. I put the word in quotes because by today’s definitions of erotica it’s fairly tame. Let us call it light erotica, or mild erotica. Anyways it’s a good novel (and rare, well not anymore) that moves along quickly.

Campus Doll by Donald E. Westlake

AMAZON KINDLE | FICTIONWISE

Campus Doll by Donald E. Westlake

Campus Doll by Donald E. Westlake

The intimate story of a coed who turned “love” into a big business! At Clifton College the male students were never frustrated. When a campus cutie teased and ran, there was always Jackie Hayes’ “study rooms” to resort to. There you could do your “homework” in peace. There you could carry on experiments so dear to the hearts of all eager students, with tutors truly dedicated to their work: Sandy, Laura, Rita, Honey and even Jackie–the campus doll herself. True, this extra-curricular work led to no degree but it did satisfy a need, with girls on your own mental level–coeds who knew as much about English Lit, Advanced Psychology–and Love–as you did. But with all the fun comes a dark side. Jackie thought it would all be so simple. Turn a trick a few times a week and she would have enough money to stay in college. But it kept escalating. Now she was a Madame of the house and behind her back even Marijuana was being sold! She didn’t realize she’d need protection, even if that protection was unwanted and cruel. Men were the problem, Jackie was convinced, and that’s when she turned to the arms of innocent Rita. First published in 1961 by Donald E. Westlake under the pen name, Edwin West.

Sea Change by C.M. Kornbluth and Judith Merril

Sea Change by C.M. Kornbluth and Judith Merril

The seas were capable of great resources, including the extraction of metal so civilization could grow. But civilization was still separated the “haves” and the “have not”. The domes under the water were a dangerous enough place to work. But when there were saboteurs about, things got a lot worse. For Lev Sloane, a valued technician, remaining politically neutral was no longer an option. Now he had to show the beautiful African, Dr. Vanderpoel, around the dome and keep safe. But from what direction was the danger coming? Sloane didn’t know.

But Guy Carew, half-Indian heir of murdered multi-millionaire Val Carew, saw fit to give it to her, and she innocently accepted the offer. Now she has her doubts: Was it truly out of the generosity of his heart, or something more sinister? Jean intends to find out; however, it seems that the murderer isn’t the only one who doesn’t want her to learn the truth! Somehow, for her and Guy, she must get through this in one piece ? or end up like Val Carew.

The Graveyard Rats and Other Stories by Henry Kuttner

The Graveyard Rats and Other Stories by Henry Kuttner

Old Masson had a secret– One of Salem’s oldest and most decrepit cemeteries was put in Old Masson’s charge, but he didn’t mind–he was more than sufficiently compensated by the treasures the newly departed wholeheartedly offered him. Unfortunately, he always seemed to have to work harder to earn his keep, for he had an unusual rival to match: rats! The critters, large as cats, often took whole bodies out of the coffins and into some dark, sinister place–where it is rumored that ghouls and evil creatures worse than the rats dwell. Old Masson never worried, though; these were, after all, just rumors–and they were, after all, just rats. Or were they? Also contains the stories: THE EGO MACHINE, WHERE THE WORLD IS QUIET, PROBLEM WITH ETHICS, WHAT HATH ME?, and the classic HOME IS THE HUNTER.

The Planetary Adventures of Eric John Stark

He is Eric John Stark, known far and wide around the galaxy because of his many exploits and unparalleled fearlessness. But he is also called N’Chaka, Man-Without-a-Tribe. Born and raised in the savage surroundings of Mercury, and then reclaimed by his fellow Earthmen after they have destroyed his tribe and home, Stark spends his life wandering, not staying in one place for long, yet ever and always leaving his mark.

Gunfire at Salt Fork by William Hopson

Gunfire at Salt Fork by William Hopson

He had a five-notch past and plenty more room on his gun. Carr was coming back and along the silent dusty street of Salt Fork you could almost smell death in the air. In the gray light of morning the four Kendalls waited for him, gun-hot and swaggering–but thinking, too, of the five dead outlaws strung out down Jonathan Carr’s back trail. The morning grew brighter–and so did the knowledge that by sundown in Salt Fork there would be burying to do.

AMAZON KINDLE | FICTIONWISE

A spine-tingling NERO WOLFE murder-mystery. It all began when Nero Wolfe was blackmailed into taking the case of a rather stunning blonde who was accused of stealing. Suddenly there was a corpse! And to further complicate matters … another corpse! Then Nero Wolfe started weaving his fine web. When he had completed it, he was stunned to find himself enmeshed in it! For big spiders were weaving, too! Powerful, international spiders that had everything to lose if Nero Wolfe should win–and who were determined that he should become their fly! But Nero Wolfe again managed to sort out all the queer characters in this intriguing case and put the finger on the killer; but for a while it seemed he would never make it! Mix diamonds and murder … spice it with an attractive blonde and a sinuous brunette … put in a weird fencing academy to bake … and it comes out as international skullduggery with deadly icing! When Nero Wolfe was forced to bite into this concoction, he not only suffered acute private eye indigestion–he was catapulted into the strangest and most dangerous assignment of his colorful career!

New Releases–3 New Audiobook & 3 New eBooks!

Wonder Publishing Group is marching onward and upward with an impressive list of authors and titles for this week’s new releases: Philip K. Dick, Andre Norton, Jack Vance, William Tenn, Ray Bradbury, Leigh Brackett, and Day Keene. Are you kidding me? That’s a galaxy of stars 😉

New Audiobook Releases:

The Men Return & Worlds of Origin
By Jack Vance; Read by Tim Rowe
1 hr, 10 min.- [UNABRIDGED]

Available at Audible

Two vintage stories from the 1950s by science-fiction Grand Master Jack Vance, who wrote stories of adventure, detection, horror, and humor.

What the Critics Say:

“‘Worlds of Origin’: A mystery novel and a fine example of Vance’s trademark imagination with worlds and customs of alien origin. No less than a dozen wholly unique Vance worlds come to light during Magnus Ridolphs’ inquiry into the mysterious death of a man on a space-station retreat. ‘The Men Return’: [A] completely alien earth where our universal rule of cause and effect no longer has any meaning and only the insane flourish in the new dynamics.” (Amazon reviewer “Coriolous”)

The Defenders
By Philip K. Dick; Read by Mark Douglas Nelson
61 min.- [UNABRIDGED]

Available at Audible

Taylor felt life was pretty good. Sure, living in an underground bunker developing more sophisticated weapons to bomb the Soviets was less than ideal. But he had a pretty wife, and he was safe from the radioactive poisoned environment that existed above ground. The leadies, sophisticated robot servants, could inform them of the devastating destruction, the bombed out cities, and the further Soviet attacks. But it was a strange fact that the latest leadie to return to the bunker showed no sign of radioactivity. Strange enough for Taylor to be ordered above ground in a lead-lined suit to investigate. That Taylor didn’t want to go, wasn’t really an option!

People of the Crater
By Andre Norton; Read by Mark Douglas Nelson
1hr, 44min.- [UNABRIDGED]

Available at Audible

A flight to a lost world of Antarctica. Garin Featherstone has been sent to explore a mysterious blue haze that was spotted in the polar region. There he discovers a lost civilization and a strange environment of vivid green lands, crimson tree trunks, and golden rivers. He must save Thrala of the light against the lizard men.

This is Andre Norton’s first professional published story from 1947. Even the Grand Dame of science fiction had to have her first sale. And she shows her strengths in her first fantastic adventure story.
