Bolden's Pets

by Floyd L. Wallace

A fairly predictable, yet still melancholy, alien-world yarn about a man who recieves a pet from an (alien) aboriginal.

The Calm Man

by Frank Belknap Long

A surprisingly creepy short story about a woman's Mr. Right becoming Mr. Too-good-to-be-true.

The Day Time Stopped Moving

by Bradner Buckner

A pretty good story about a despondent man who gets trapped "between time". I've seen many similarly premised stories - Twilight Zone, Outer Limits, Stephen King's Langoliers - done better, but this one is okay given its length.

Think Yourself to Death

by Stephen Marlowe

This was my first Mayhem adventure. As the description says, Johnny Mayhem inhabits dead bodies and solves mysteries. In this story (episode?) he's been dispatched to a world colonized by East Indians and where any offworlder who enters the society commits suicide, purportedly by the gurus who run the planet. There's a bit of gimmeckry in the telling but it's still a pretty good pulp tale.
