TONY and the BEETLES by Philip K. Dick Reddish-yellow sunlight filtered through the thick quartz windows into the sleep-compartment. Tony Rossi yawned, stirred a little, then opened his black eyes and sat up quickly. With one motion he tossed the covers back and slid to the warm metal floor. He clicked off his alarm clock and hurried to the closet. It looked like a nice day. The landscape outside was motionless, undisturbed by winds or dust-shift. The boys heart pounded excitedly. He pulled his ...

Kenneth Robeson Tuned for Murder CHAPTER I Dollars on Wings The man stood on the downtown corner doing things that no one had ever seen done before. Outrageous, crazy things you might have expected to see done in an institution where the windows are barred and the walls are padded, but never on a street corner in the financial section of a respectable city. Garfield City was extremely respectable, as towns go. It was in southern New York State in a hill region where quarries, mines and farming ...

Kenneth Robeson The Glass Mountain CHAPTER I Lightning Bolt Old Joe Bass was commonly called Fish-eyes. That was partly because of his name, and partly because he had that kind of eyes. They stuck out a little, were far apart in his rather narrow face, didnt ever seem to blink, and had a glazed look. Joe Bass dressed in overalls that were ninety percent patches faded to all different shades of blue, had skin like leather from years of exposure to sun and wind, and left an almost unbroken trail ...

Kenneth Robeson The Blood Ring CHAPTER I Shades of the Past Just off Massachusetts Avenue, in Washington, D.C., squatted the great, dark-red bulk of the Braintree Museum. It had plenty of grounds around it, shaded by huge old trees. It was beautiful in daylight. But at night, with none too many street lamps around there anyway, it looked pitch-dark, grim, filled with whispering shadows. On this particular night, it was darker than ever around Braintree Museum. The big trees seemed actually to ...

Some others in Ashton City were larger, but this was the most ornate and commanded the biggest rents. The surrounding streets were very dark. The shadows seemed blackest right around the building. And that was as it should be. For that building had a dark reputation. Its owner had an even darker one. At the corner of the ...
