Trash Menace Gallery: The Unquiet Spirit, Fear

The Unquiet Spirit by Marguerite Steen
Through a fortuitous meeting with an old schoolfriend, Arnold Lewes, whom he had not seen for years, Lord Whittenham is invited to spend a week-end at Arnold’s home in Buckinghamshire. 

But his hopes of a pleasant week-end in the quiet of the country are soon dashed. 

Lord Whittenham, the narrator of this strange story, soon senses the extraordinary tense atmosphere that shrouds the otherwise conventional scene and is uncomfortably conscious that a bewildering drama is unfolding before his incredulous eyes. 

A drama of strife between two women, and a clash between the parents of an abnormal child, soon turns into a deadly battle for sanity against the supernatural forces of evil. 

Fear by L. Ron Hubbard
Professor James Lowry doesn't believe in ghosts, the supernatural, the surreal, or any type of dark fantasy. Not until a gentle spring evening when his hat disappeared, and suddenly he couldn't remember the last four hours of his life. Now, the quiet university town of Atworthy is changing - slightly at first, then faster and more frighteningly each time he tries to remember. Lowry is pursued by a dark, secret evil that is turning his whole world against him while it whispers a his forgotten scary story from the shadows: If you find your hat you'll find your four hours. If you find your four hours then you will die…Fear turns to terror...

She lured him into the world’s oldest trap
Frank "Dolly" Dillon has a job he hates, working sales and collections for Pay-E-Zee Stores, a wife named Joyce he can't stand, and an account balance that barely allows him to pay the bills each month.

Trash Menace Gallery: Orphans, No Place on Earth, Cocaine Wars

Orphans by Ed Naha

No Place on Earth by Louis Charbonneau
In the 23rd Century, science’s triumph in prolonging life comes at a terrible cost. Widespread famine and overpopulation spurred the creation of the Leader Party, a Malthusian-inspired dictatorship that controls the world with a ceaseless grip. Though a mysterious rebel group, The Underground, works to dismantle the police state, they’ve been dealt a potentially fatal blow—a traitor has infiltrated their ranks. Now, the success of a crucial operation, and perhaps the entire resistance, lies in the hands of one captured rebel, Petr Clayborne.

Raised by the state after his father was executed for treason, Petr never loved the Leader Party. But unlike his dad, he didn’t see any point in opposing it. That all changed when he found out he and his wife Alda would soon have a son of their own. Under the Population Code, unsanctioned birth is a crime punishable by death—for the parents…and the child.

Captain Kurt Hartog, the Population Control Corps’ most ruthless leader, will stop at nothing to crush The Underground. His brutal interrogation threatens Petr’s sanity, and his life. But Petr guards the rebellion’s most powerful secret. For the sake of humanity, for the sake of his son, he must be willing to do anything to protect it.
