Summary
  • The haunted strangler: Nineteenth-century English author James Rankin believes that the wrong man has hanged twenty years earlier for a series of murders, but his investigations lead him to a horrible and, for him, gruesomely inescapable secret
  • Corridors of blood: In 1840s London, Dr. Thomas Bolton dares to dream the unthinkable: to operate on patients without causing pain. Unfortunately, the road to general anesthesia is blocked by a ruthless killer, as well as Bolton's devastating addiction to his own medicines
  • First man into space: In this interstellar cautionary tale, brash U.S. Navy test pilot Dan Prescott, hungry for fame, rockets himself beyond Earth's atmosphere, only to become encrusted with cosmic dust and return a blood-drinking monster
  • The atomic submarine: When the nuclear-powered submarine the Tiger Shark sets out to investigate a series of naval disasters near the Arctic Circle, its fearless crew finds itself besieged by electrical storms, an unidentified floating saucer, and lots of hairy tentacles
