In the tradition of the old Ace Doubles (flip the book over to read the second title), here is the twenty-fourth Wildside Double:
TOUCHES OF WONDER AND TERROR: Tales of Dark Fantasy and Science Fiction, by James C. Glass. Here are eight stories of science fiction and fantasy to stir your emotions, amuse you, or give you a night of uneasy sleep. There are fun-loving aliens on tour, a vision quest in the Badlands of North Dakots, a protocol hostess with a most unusual employer, and a cursed knife blade uncovered by children. A space traveler is seduced by a musical, cosmic
voice, and a film critic discovers true realism. A warrior learns what valor really is, and a woman climbing a dangerous mountain is aided by a strange being from the past. Great reading from a master wordsmith!
VOYAGES IN MIND AND SPACE: Stories of Mystery and Fantasy, by James C. Glass. Here are six long stories of mystery, fantasy, and science fiction to entertain you, and a rare poem by the author. A woman and her daughter discover there is more to death than biology, a young student bullied at school finds power in a poster, and a hog farmer begins a journey to his destiny in a rainstorm. A grandson finds himself in danger for suspecting that his grandmother is doing a "bad thing" in her basement. A creature from mythology is reunited with her lover from a distant past, and an astronaut dreams of a love unbounded by space or time. Great reading from a master storyteller!
