Comment: The Widow's Lover: A guy is an executioner using the guillotine. He really loves his job. He retires and realizes he has very little as a pension. He then starts killing men he feels are responsible for problems in society and is later tried and sentenced to death. The Tentacles of Death: A guy goes to a planet to look into charges of human sacrifice which turn out to be true. He finds a way to deal with the guy responsible for that, and with the monster. Dr. Osborne's Secret Weapon (text): A good story about invaders from space who attack the United States and can't be defeated by the weapons of the time. One scientist realizes weapons from another time, though, might do the job very well. The Bloody Sword: A guy is due to inherit a Scottish castle, but his uncle is willing to kill him first. A ghost has a way of preventing that, though. The Portrait of Death: A guy is shopping when he sees a portrait in one place and the portrait is named Portrait of Death and it's his face. The guy traces down the artist and things get worse from there. The Finger of Fate: A woman does a good deed for a Tibetan healer and is rewarded in turn. Graveyard in the Antarctic: A guy discovers a seal equivalent of an elephant's graveyard.
