. Old Phineas Begley, the multi-million- 
aire, was dead. He was, as far as anybody 
knew, the last of his line — descendant of 
a noted family that went back hundreds 
of years in American history. He had left, 
no will, fcnd it was expected that his huge 
"■fortune would revert to the state. But 
from nowhere appeared a swarm of claim- 
ants, all swearing to be distant connections 
of the Begley family. Adams and Adams, 
old Phineas's attorneys, had their hands 
full in disproving the numerous claims. 
Therefore, they were not in a particularly 
-good frame of mind on this particular day, 
when they were interviewing the last of 
the claimants.

The place was at the ancestral Begley 
home, and the claimant was a Mrs. Hen-

in America, who founded the family for- 
tune, whs also named Abernathy! There's 
a portrait of him as a child, right up. 
there!" 

■ 

The portrait showed a handsome boy of 
about ten years old, with a mane of brown 
hair over piercing blue eyes. There was 
a cleft in his strong chin and a hairline 
scar on his. right cheek. He was stroking 
A strange-looking little dog whose coat 
seemed a mass of tight ringlets. As Hen- 
Yietta Begley saw the picture, she gasped*

this,' 1 she breathed. " Ab'crnathy — come 

It was now the turn of both attorneys 
to gasp, because there entered a handsome 
boy of about ten years old, with a mam* 
of brown hair over piercing blue ryes. He 
was the replica of the boy in the portrait! 
Mr. Adams, Sr., recovered first. "Clever," 
he said coldly, u veri) clever. You got a 



Very well!" said the woman proudly, 
her head held high, "''ome, son!" Just as 
they walked towards the door, a dog — 
obviously, Ihe boy 's — bounded in — and 
Adams father and son exchanged startled 
gasps. What w strange-looking little dog, 
its coat a mass of tight* ringlets! "This 
way, Patapan," said the boy, as he took 
his leash and led him out. 

* 

And now the attorneys were alone in 
the gloomy old study. The younger one 
looked at his father hesitantly. " She 
couldn't have fixed up the boy to look like 
that picture," he reminded him, "because 
nobody's even seen the picture tor years! 
"Old Phineas kept the study locked up for 
the last 40 years of his life!" 

"I don't know how she did it, but she . 
managed somehow!" muttered the older 
man. ' ' But that dog — how \\ she swing 
that? You can't make up a dog the way 
you could, say. atrained child actor! What 
was the ridiculous name that kid called 
him ? Oh. yes — I'afapati!" Frowning, he 
inspected the portrait. It had been painted 
by a master craftsman, with an attention 
to detail which was almost miraculous. 
Mr. Adams. Sr., picked up a powerful 
magnifying glass from the study desk. 
" Amazing," he said. "This glass even 
brings out. the texture of his suit!" 

f 

"What's that spot of yellow on the dog's 
collar?" asked his son. 

- 

Beneath the strong glass, the yellow spot 
took precise form. " Why. it's a name-tag 1 ." 
said the old lawyer. "Ami I think I can 
even make out the name- on it! It's—it's 
—l J otapa)i!" ) 

i 

Not that they were superstitious. Neither 
was the probate court judge. It was just 
decided that, after all. nfa; be the boy had 
a riyh't to the Begley esfate!

Amazing new medicated lotion developed 

by a doctor works wonders by clearing up 

skin blemishes in one week or less! 



DON'T let a bad complexion ruin romance, spoil your fun, 
cause you to be embarrassed, shy or ashamed. If you 
suffer from acne, the common external cause of pimples 
among young people, try this wonderfully effective medicated 
lotion 1 that was developed by a practicing physician to clear 
up his own teen ager's complexion after other methods had 
failed. It has produced astonishing results for many thousands 
of others. It is GUARANTEED to help you or it won't cost 
you a single cent! 

Doesn't Show On Your Face 

Keraplex is a skin-colored lotion (NOT a greasy salve or 
ointment!) that is quickly absorbed by the skin and gets 
right down in the pores where its healing and antiseptic ingre- 
dients can go to work. After you have applied it, there is no 
trace left on the surface. In fact, it makes a perfect powder 
base for girls and a refreshing after shaving lotion for men . . . 
actually improves the tone of the skin! It is pleasant and 
easy to use — leaving your skin soft, clean and fragrant. 

Works in SIX Out of SEVEN Cases! 

An analysis of RESULTS taken from actual case histories 
proves that Keraplex is Successful in clearing up six of every 
seven cases, of externally caused blackheads, pimples and 
other common blemishes. It is also very effective in the treat- 
ment of eczema. It tones up the complexion generally, giving 
it a healthy, radiant glow. 



x-:-x 



" 



Try This New Method 
Without Risking A Penny! 

Keraplex is GUARANTEED to clear up your skin troubles 
or there will be NO COST to you whatsoever. If yours hap- 
pens to be the ONE extra -stubborn case out of seven which 
Keraplex cannot help in one short week, it will cost you 
nothing to have tried it. Keraplex is sent to you with that 
simple, positive GUARANTEE!

W*t$W® 












The editor of such a magazine as 
"Forbidden Worlds" has a task which 
is far from easy. His job isn't a matter 
of merely accumulating enough stories 
to fill an issue. Rather, its his responsi- 
bility to determine the kind of stories 
which will prove most popular among our 
large reading public. Once this is done, 
the job's just begun. Naturally, ye Editor 
can't -fill these pages with one story after 
the other adhering to a single formula, 
even if that formula is the most successful. 
You, the readers, would be the first to 
notice and resent such lack of originality. 
So we try to vary our contents so that 
they'll always be fresh and different. Of 
course, there's always one lead story in 
which we sort of "shoot the works." In 
this issue — as if we have to tell you! — - 
it's "Pussycat On The Dog Star.** This, 
one is distinctly an offbeat effort, embody- 
ing as novel a treatment as ever we've 
carried. 

What's so different about it? Well, if 
you were just to pick up this magazine 
and riffle carelessly through its pages, you 
might not notice a thing. But if you did 
this, you wouldn't be the type of "For- 
bidden Worlds" fan that makes up our 
large and enthusiastic readership. You 
see, our kind of reader tears into a story, 
digesting every last bit of substance that 
it contains. And if you happen to be a 
typical fan, you'll notice that this is no 
typical science fiction yarn. Oh, it's got 
science fiction in it, all right — but that's 
only the beginning! For what we've done 
here is attempt to make science fiction 
come alive; to make it human, plausible 
— and at the same time, to give it a 
"sock" ending that's purely out of this 
world! 

* 

We've done this because the vastly en- 
joyable correspondence which we hold 



with so many of our readers indicates 
clearly that this is the sort of fare you 
want. "Give us real stories,'* you've 
clamored — "the sort of stuff we can sink 
our teeth into! That means yarns that 
fascinate — that challenge — that surprise!" 
And so we came up with x "Pussycat On 
The Dog Star," and we'd like it to set 
a precedent for future yarns to come. If 
you like it, write and tell us so— and if 
you don't, we want to hear that, too. 
Just remember that every little bit helps 
in framing a magazine that's tailor-made 
for your taste! Address your letter to 
The Editor, "Forbidden Worlds," 45 
West 45th Street, New York 36, N. Y.

tions permits. And in case you're in- 
terested in what some of our other readers 
are writing, here goes!

Dear Editor: 



I've always thought that 'Forbidden 
Worlds' was the best, most exciting 
comic on the stands — and now I think 
so more than ever! Your stories are 

great i 

— L. V. Turete, Los Angeles, Calif." 



"Dear Editor: — 

I was glad to see * Forbid den Worlds 9 
survive when all of the old horror' 
magazines went off the stands. It proves 
that decent reading matter can, in the 
long run, be more thrilling, interesting 
and satisfying than the other kind! 
Congratulations to you! 

— Odette Girth, Paris 16, France." 



"Dear Editor: — 

I missed several of your issues, but I 
sure am glad to catch up with you 
again! r Forbidden Worlds' is right up 
on top of the heap for story and art. 
Keep up the good work! 

— Henry Morello, New Orleans, La."
