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.

New Releases – Beyond Bedlam & Young Nurse

Sometimes there’s an author you really like, but perhaps he is well known. At least not anymore. Wyman Guin is one of those authors to me. He didn’t write a lot of stories, but those stories have been anthologized often. He’s best known for Beyond Bedlam, and the first story I read by Mr. Guin. It’s a wonderful tale of a believable world where schizophrenia is the norm.

Wyman Guin burst upon the Science Fiction field with the classic Beyond Bedlam in the 1950s. His story of how society has made living with schizophrenia the norm rather than the exception. The story reads like a mash-up of 1984 with One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The other stories in this collection are in a lighter vein and shows that Guin was one of the best humorist writing SF in the decade of the 50s. Stories about witches, genetic engineered creatures, and mathematical magic. Also contains the stories: MY DARLING HECATE, THE ROOT AND THE RING, VOLPLA

A Vintage Romance from Peggy Gaddis, the queen of the Nurse novel. A young girl in doctor’s office soon learns the naked truth men, women ? and passion! “We can’t go on like this … wanting each other so damnably…” His arms enfolded her as she burst into tears. His face was gray and haggard. “Christie, listen to me. Don’t you see we can’t go on like this, being together, wanting each other so damnably, without taking each other? There’s not much future in that. ” “It’s the only future I want, Ross,” she told him huskily when she had controlled her tears. “I want to belong to you, Ross. I want to be yours completely any time and all the time. If we can’t be married for a while it doesn’t matter … Ross, I love you. I’ll never love anyone else … Never! Never!” Recklessly, Christie offered her gorgeous, fresh young beauty to the man she loved, knowing it was all she had. A young nurse in the employ of a cynical, world-weary doctor, she knew from experience that only passion could hold a man who lived as this doctor did, pampered by women! Christie’s life was about to be turned upside down when murder comes to pay an office visit! First published in 1952 by Peggy Gaddis writing as Sylvia Erskine.
