Drome of the Living Dead - John Scott Douglas
It was the First World War, the aerial battle was in full throttle, but
everything was going wrong. Men and flying machines were disappearing for
no reason. The base landing lights had failed, preventing returning pilots
from finding their way home, and the enemy's attackers, its Whirlwind
Flight, came from nowhere to destroy Allied machines. When the last
fighter plane was descending toward a safe landing at home base, the pilot
was certain he had sighted many of his friends, but something was wrong.
They behaved like zombies, victims of a German plot, created by a scheme
borrowed from Haitian voodoo.
Conjured - Larry Eugene Meredith
Being an active and zealous president of the neighborhood Betterment
Committee is hazardous when deciding who is and isn't bona fide.
The Golden Patio - Aubrey Feist
Inspired by his grandparents' painting of a crumbling archway and great
closed gates, the storyteller roamed through Spain till he found the gates
of the Golden Patio, beyond which was a woman and a mystery. Once, long
ago, there had been a murder, and now he knew who was responsible.
The Cleaning Machine - F. Paul Wilson
She hated everyone because they gave her such trouble, but it was all
resolved when she discovered a strange invention and decided to make
all of her antagonists disappear, including the children. Of course,
her story made no sense, the police did not believe a word she said, and
the doctors all thought she was just a crazy old woman.
The Storm That Had to be Stopped - Murray Leinster
The sun had taken on a faint bluish tint when the temperature
changed, as if no more heat came from the sun. Then the wind picked up,
carrying whole trees in a monstrous turmoil. This was not a meteorological
phenomenon, but a result of an evil man's invention.
