The Chestermarke Instinct

by J.S. Fletcher

An enjoyable crime novel which, unfortunately, collapses at the ending with a rushed and contrived story line.

An Amiable Charlatan

by E. Phillips Oppenheim

A British gentleman befriends a charming con-man and his beautiful stepdaughter. I highly recommended it for some light amusement. This seems like the sort of thing the film industry would have jumped on at one time, I wonder if it was ever made into a movie?

Gold in the Sky

by Alan Nourse

Excellent, fast-paced SF novella. Although parts of the plot are far-fetched this one scores a 5 for entertainment value.

Queen of the Black Coast

by Robert E. Howard

In this short story Conan has barely escaped pursuers after his court appearance does not go well (he kills the judge). Attempting escape by sea, he is quickly captured by a beautiful pirate queen. Plenty of pulpy action follows.
