  • Gregory Sallust Adventure No. VII. It is 1943, World War II, and secret agent Gregory Sallust is parachuted into Nazi Germany. Together with ex-Bolshevik General Stefan Kuporovitch, they join forces with the widow of a German diplomat who is in contact with Allied Intelligence.

  • When William Halleck and his wife Heidi go on their second honeymoon, it's partly to take their minds off the worrying fact that Bill's losing weight quickly - and he isn't on a diet. It's also to forget the dreadful accident that killed a gypsy woman and landed Bill in court; to forget Heidi's excessive smoking and Bill's excessive eating have been a strain on the marriage; and for Billy to forget the frightfully disfigured face of the old gypsy man outside the court house.  But the second honeymoon is soon forgotten as the weight continues to fall away from Bill, no matter how much he eats. He goes through rigorous tests and terrible strain but no cause can be diagnosed.  But Bill knows - he knows that the gypsy with the rotting nose and the dead woman are at the bottom of it all.  He has been cursed - and there's precious little he can do about it. Until Richard Ginelli, his long time friend and New York gang leader comes to his aid bringing with him the force of another kind of curse: the curse of the white man from town...Cover art by Paul Davies.

  • Ashton wasn't a big important town, yet it was here that three very different characters would face the hardest tests of their lives.  Marshall, an ex-city newspaper editor with an eye for a story and a nose for something rotten; Hank, the young pastor of a small church in danger of tearing itself apart and Tal, captain of the angelic warriors summoned to make a stand against an encroaching tide of evil.  They had to face a callous, clever, sleepless enemy and they would need each other more than would dare to believe.

With fabulous black and white photos from all four segments.
