THE THIRD DAY after Mrs, Peabody 
had settled into he* new summer cot- 
tage on Lake Owasco, she decided to pay 
« visit to her nearest neighbor a few hurt* 
dred yards down the path that skirted the 
•bote. But before she had even gotten 
within sight of her neighbor's house in the 
tree-fringed cove, Mrs. Pcabody's atten- 
tion was drawn eo the woebegone figure of 
n tittle girl crouching at the water's edge* 
staring soulrully Into the blue depths* 

As Mrs* Peabody approached, she was 
startled to sec that die girl's clothes and 
halt were dripping wet, and that her skin 
bad the awful white pallor of ft shroud- 
She's probably Just recovered from » 
long illness, Mrs. Peabody thought. Thar 
would explain her ghastly whiteness. 
> This might be ber very first day out-of- 
doors, but she'll probably be having n re- 
lapse after that wetting she apparently 
just got. 

"How did you get so vet, child?" Mrs. 
Peabody asked wjth concern. "Did yon 
fall into the lake?" 

The girl looked up a( bet with eyes of 
cloudy blue. "Oh, yes,** she said gravely. 
"And it was cold. So eold».for eo long."* 

"Well, why don't you go, on home and! 
gel dry and warm? You'll catch your 
death sitting there like that!" 

The girl smiled slowly, sadly. **Yo» 
don't catch death. Death catches yon. 
But it isn't so bad. He looks very terrible, 
but he's very gentle with little girls. It 
didn't hurt much,'* 

The poor thing's delirious, Mrs. Peabody 
thought In alarm. "Where do you live, 
solid? I'll fc»v# to take you home right 



"Oh, yoo're oeming into the lake witb 
Bel'* the girl exclaimed, standing up with 
a pleased expression on her face.* "That'll 
be fun! There's ow oos e!ss down cher* 



except some grouchy old fisherman* Come 
on.., take my hand and Til chow you bow 
easy it is. All you have to do is step 
right into the lake and*..** 

Mrs. Peabody drew back in horror as 
she felt the icy clamminess of the girl's 
hand touching hers* The child's tem- 
perature must be terribly low due to shock 
and exposure* she thought wildly; that 
was the only explanation for the death- 
ly Iciness of that touch. And as for 
what the girl had sald M .well, that was 
merely the raving of m sick mind. 

Realizing that the delirious girl prob- 
ably wouldn't obey any orders from a 
stranger to return to her home, Mrs* Pea- 
body said, "What's your name, child?'* 

"Alice Hanscomhe. But .aren't you 
coming into the lake with me.,.?" 

Hanseombe. The renting agent had 
told Mr*, peabody that her nearest neigh- 
bor's name was Hanscombe. "No, dear*" 
Mrs. Peabody said as she began to 
hurry away. "Now you stay right there . 
and I'll be right bacfc,** 

As Mrs* Peabody rounded the edge 
of the cove and saw the Hanseotnbe 
house ahead* eh* thought she heard 
ei splash coming from behind ner*,.arid 
that ooly mad* her quicken her step* 
Into * run. When she burst Into the 
kitchen of the house* she said breath- 
lessly to the woman standing st 
the stove, "Mrs. Hanscombe. «I, .,!'<*■

your daughter Alice standing drip-

sellout) You've given us your wholehearted 
•upport, greeting our new magazine with an 
enthusiasm which is fast making publishing

hosts of new readers. All of which guar; 
sotees the fact that "Forbidden Worlds'* 
will continue to thrill and entertain, its 
vast and arowina public for many years to 
corns) 

It's no simple fob to thrill and. entertain 
leaders who know and demand the best. It 
Cttlls for constant research op the parts of 
experienced delvera into the occult— for 
searching out the strange, eerie and little- 
known facts that lie hidden deep within 
the menacing realm of the supernatural. It 
colls for the skilful efforts ol able and im- 
aginative writers geared to turn out the 
type of story material calculated to leave 
you breathless and gasping. And it de- 
mands the talant of ace artists who can 



translate weird story material inio spine- 
tingling life. All of this we are bringing 
you—and shall continue to do so. You'll 
see the gripping results in this current is- 
sue. For we've assembled a galaxy of 
fast-paced yarns which should be right up 
the alley of you experienced fans! There's 
"Lair of the Vampire", presenting a weird 
menace from out of the Unknown. There's 
"The Vengeful Spirit", one of the most im- 
aginative and novel ghost stories you'ye 
ever read. And "Domain of the Doomed", 
a gasp-laden adventure into truly forbidden 
worlds! "Skull of tbe Sorcerer" is a Hal- 
lowe'en story which should make you 
bar the door comes All Hallow's Eve— and 
"Tbe Witch's Apprentice" packs an out-of- 
this-world punch you'll long, remem- 
ber! 

Please— write us about how you like 
this issue. Tell us which stories you 
like, and why! And tell us what you'd like 
to see in future issues, because this is 
your magazine! Address your letters to 
Tbe Editor, Forbidden Worlds, 45 Wcst45tb 
Street, New York 19, N. Y. And In case 
you'd like to know what other readers 
think, here goes! 



''Dear Editor:* 

I have just read your newest book, 'Forbidden Worlds'. I find tbis maga- 
zine most interesting and exciting, and hope that I will see many more copies of 
it* I likett alt the stories in it, especially that titled 'The Way of The Werewolf*. 
f hope you continue tbis book and keep up tbe exciting stories that you put into 
this last issue, t have also read 'Adventures Into The Unknown', and find it 
completely thrilling and absorbing. Keep up your swell work on both of themt 
*- ,#•■♦. June livelier, Cleveland, 0." 

**Dear Editor f 

My favorite comic up to now has been 'Advenrures Into The Unknown', 
but at last I've found one which t like equally** 'Forbidden Worlds'! Yes, I think 
that 'Forbidden Worlds' has done a great fob in living up to your earlier magazine 
in every respect—even though t would have thought it impossiblel t especially 
liked tbe stories, 'Demon of Destruction' and 'The Monster Doll'. I'd. like to see 
you try some good robot stories"*also zombies, 
••Dmar Editor;- -Michael R. Elliott, Portland, Ore." 

I haw just finished reading r v*T new book called 'Forbidden Worlds', and 
I think it is tbe best book I have ever read. I can also say tbe same thing about 
your •Adventures Into The Unknown'— so take your pick! I am crippled with 
arthritis and cannot walk, and wonderful books like these help me to pass my time 
tbrillingty. Tbe stories I tike best are about vampires and werewolves—but any 
stories of the Unknown and supernatural send me. Keep up the good work—and 
keep these books rolling!

TUB TVO MEN sat ta • boot* « «b» 
far and of the dimly-lighsed tavern, 

drinking and talkteg. Or. wihw one ol 
tbea.»fh« drunken on«.«was doing til tha

obviously under •' tremendous strata* ob- 
viously la ascd of someone to pour bis 
troubles out to,. .had Invited the second 
nan over to the booth for a drink. 

"I...I. can't stand this waiting any 
longer," the first man said desperately. 
"•Never knowing when they'll catch up 
with me, when they'll drag me back to the 
world I came from, to the world of 2967 

cV**" 

Tn« ana paused to drink froar the glass 
fa front of him* as if to give himself 
courage fet what he felt he had to say. 
•H^j know you won't believe me," he 
continued after draining his glass and 
signaling the bartender for another. '*But 
it's iuat as well that yoa think j'tn raving 
in * drunken delirium, or that I'm a mn*» 
man. I don't care what you think, as long 
as you listen to me... If... if I don't talk 
about this to someone, 1...I will go crazy!" 
The second man nodded sympathetically, 
M if he understood.. .and the first man con- 
tinued: "You see, 1 originally came from 
the 30th century. You couldn't possibly 
have any idea what that world is like. The 
robots control all aspects of life...from the 
moment of birth, the human infant is as* 
signed to his place in life, according to 
what the robot analyzers think he's best 
suited for. And from that moment on, th* 
human's life becomes ordered and regi- 
mented down to the very last detail. 

"There's no chance for the slightest 
expression of individualism, of freedom of 
will or choice. It all amounts to what you 
Americans would call a slave-state. ..where 
all humans are staves to the all-powerful, 
' ceesnal, heartless robots! 

1T» that world, I was ah historian of the 



past. Mine was the Job of using the time- 
machine to return to the dead ages of the 
past, investigate those ages* and then re* 
rata to tho 30th century' to write up the 
history. It was expected that I return*^* 
waa unthinkable' dial 1 should not. And the 
thought never crossed my mind to remain 
In the Stone Ages, or in the era of the 
Roman Empire, for example... until I came 
to the United States ia the year 1951- 

**At first 1 was astonished at the de- 
mocracy that you Americans take for 
granted. 1 was amazed at the freedom all 
of you had, at your ability to choose your 
own lives, to do pretty much what you 
pleased, as long as you hurt no one else. 
And as I lived among you day after day, 
studying your habits and customs, I slowly 
realized that this was the kind of life I 
wanted and longed for...that 1 could never 
go back to that despotic slave-state of the 
robots after once having tasted the freedom 
and democracy here. 

"So 1 deserted my century and my mas* 
ters. I destroyed the instrument that was 
necessary for. my return to 2967 A. 0. ... 
and became one of you! But I know it is 
impossible to keep a secret from my robot 
masters. I am long overdue, and I am sure 
rhat they have long since sent a detective 
to follow me into the past and force me to 
return.. .to my deathl And since my pursuer 
must be a man who has been trained in the 
arts of detection since the moment of his 
birth, I know I cannot escape. ..no matter 
how well I covet my tracks and try to lose 
myself among you. Any day now my pur- 
suer will find me, place a strong hand on 
my shoulder and say..." 

The second man reached over, placed a 
hand on the first man's shoulder, and said, 
"I |av« found you, Rog Halith! But I, too, 
love this democracy 1 find myself in! We 
will both remain here.. .and persuade^aU
