In Our Next Issue:

THE PLAGUE OF THE LIVING DEAD, by A. Hyatt Verrill. The author of “Beyond the Pole” and “The Man Who Could Vanish” has written a most remarkable tale which comes pretty close to straining your credulity, but at the same time you will say to yourself over and over that there is nothing impossible about it. Immortality IS possible, as recent researches at the Rockefeller Institute have indicated; that is, animal tissue can be kept alive indefinitely. You will be thrilled by Mr Verrill’s story.
WHITE GOLD PIRATE, by Merlin Moore Taylor. An absorbing detective story about a daring criminal who baffles many authorities interested in the mysterious disappearance of enormous quantities of platinum. A scientific detective uses the X-ray, finger prints and the phonograph in a particularly interesting manner, making this a most plausible story with a true scientific aspect.
HICK’S INVENTIONS WITH A KICK, by Henry Hugh Simons, in which an entirely new thing in dining tables and service is promulgated. Naturally, being a new invention, mishaps occur, but that only adds to the fun for the reader. A very interesting idea, well told.
THE BALLOON HOAX, by Edgar Allan Poe. Although balloons have long since been a reality, we cannot fail to be impressed by the scope of the author’s scientifiction knowledge and prophetic vision. Also, the story is written in Poe’s inimitable style, which in itself assures you of fifteen minutes well spent.
THE LAND THAT TIME FORGOT, by Edgar Rice Burroughs (Part III). Those of you who are wondering what and why the Wieroo are and what happened to the rest of the party that landed on Caspak with Bowen Tyler and Lys LaRue will find the answer in the next five thrilling chapters, which conclude this story. The same pitch of exciting interest is maintained throughout the story.

Our Cover

This month illustrates a scene from The Green Splotches, by T. S. Stribling, where we see the great interplanetarian flyer after it has taken off from the earth. It has just risen and is gaining momentum with each fraction of a second.
