Jouluaatto oli tullut. Ty"ot oli lopetettu, kylyt kylvetty, pahnat
lattioille levitetty, kynttil"at paloivat. K"oyhinkin oli parahan valonsa

THE TRIUMPH OF NIGHT
By Edith Wharton
Copyright, 1916, By Charles Scribner's Sons
It was clear that the sleigh from Weymore had not come; and the shivering young traveller from Boston, who had counted on jumping into it when he left the train at Northridge Junction, found himself standing alone on the open platform, exposed to the full assault of night fall and winter.
The blast that swept him came off New Hampshire snow fields and ice hung forests. It seemed to have traversed interminable leagues of frozen silence, filling them with the same cold roar an...
Henry Slesar, young New York advertising executive and by now no
longer a new comer to either this magazine or to this field,
describes a strange little town that you, yourself, may blunder into
one of these evenings. But, if you do, beware beware of the

The woman in the doorway looked so harmless. Who
was to tell she had some rather startling interests?
The woman in the doorway looked like Mom in the homier political
cartoons. She was plump, apple cheeked, white haired. She w...

Relentlessly, a narrative as old as time drives forward to a climax as old as man and points a finger as grim as Death.

In the purely cerebral sense, there was no particular point of sequence at which Gral could have been said to Know. The very causality of his existence was a succession of brute obedience to brute awareness, for it was only thus that one survived. There was the danger sense on those days when the great toothed cats roamed the valley, and the males who will bring...

A Choice Of Miracles
By JAMES A. COX
You're down in the jungle with death staring you in the face. There is nothing left but prayer. So you ask for your life. But wait! Are you sure that's really what you want above all else?
Andy Larson was a hard headed Swede. He had to be, to be still alive. He hadn't been able to move anything but that hard head for what he estimated to be about three hours since he regained consciousness. And in that time he hadn't heard anything that led him to believe anyone else had survived the crash.
Robert J. Shea returns with this intriguing short short predicting
