The Star That Stuck - Ralph L. Cunningham

that can only come with the mileage of years.

the reading of books that are of no use to anybody.
Graveyard Limited - Theodore Roscoe
In the sweltering Honduran coastland, the train engineer expired his
last, but his wife refused demands by the military to have his
contagious remains cremated. Up and running, they took the

wild and reckless escape, pursued hotly by the indignant soldiers,
until a very strange occurence left them all perplexed.
