ALONE IN THE large bedroom of his. 
mansion, with an old photograph album 
spread before him, Martin Kleber had to 
fight down a momentary twinge of regret* 
"Weaknessfhe mumbled through toothless 
gums* "Mere weakness! Life^has no place 
for regrets* I've fought hard for what I've 
got, and Vm not sorry for anything!' 1 

But he couldn't help wondering exactly 
when in the past he had made his will so 
inflexible. As a boy most people had 
liked him. "People are such fools," he 
thought* "The world is, a jungle, and 
only those with sharp claws and bared 
fangs can survive." ' 

HeM operated on this principle when 
he'd gone into business, allowing nothing 
to stand in the way of his success. For a 
long timehe had been disturbed by emotions 
of pity and compassion for those he 
crushed, but all such evidences of con- 
science he eventually rooted out of him- 
self. . <■ ; 

To acquire such discipline meant fight- 
ing down pity whenever he felt it. He 
forced himself to be ruthless whert thei;e 
was no reason, except to prove to himself 
that he was pitiless* When a competitor 
ended up as a pauper or suicide, Martin 
Kleber would chuckle at their stupidity. 

Turning the withered leaves of the 
album he came across a picture of the 
only girl he had ever loved, so very long 
ago. She had loved htm too, but she had 
been very poor, and Martin Kleber had 
wanted money more than love. So, when 
he had the opportunity, he married ,an 
heiress, and systematically drove her 
mad so that he could have complete con- 
trol of her fortune. The girl he really 
loved had committed suicide. He felt 
pity then, but now Martin Kleber laughed: 
"The fool! Love is for weaklings!" 

Like many old men, he was fascinated 
by pictures of himself taken in youth- He 
gazed almost hypnotically at a large 
yellowing photograph taken during his 






pieces into 

there was a 

. i 

enure room 



college years. The face was handsome 
and open, honest. Kleber smiled trium- 
phantly. HeM changed that face. He'd 
utterly destroyed the all coo human person 

he had once been. 

It was quite late, and the logs in the 
fireplace were beginning to fall into embers* 
Kleber's old eyes were tired, and*- he 
pulled himself to his feet, intending to 
go to bed. But once again he looked at 
the youthful photograph. "Yes," he re* 
p eated aloud. * *I destroyed you! ' * 

Impulsively, he snatched it up and 
core it to j bits, flinging the 
the dying flames. Instantly, 
shriek of agony, filling the 
at once. 

Horribly startled, Kleber whirled around, 
his old heart pounding. There, standing 
at the opposite ^end of the roomj was 
young Martin Kleber, gazing at him intent- 
ly. Aghast, the old man stumbled back, 
his heart throbbing louder* 

"Yes, Martin," said the specter hollow- 
ly, "you have destroyed me, and yourself 
as well! All your life Tve fought for you. 
I was your better nature, always prompting 
you to do good. When you felt pity, it was 
my work, when you felt compassion, it 
was my doing. Until tonight there was 
always some little spark of me left alive 
in you, but when you callously tore up that 
photograph it meant that you had become 
completely evil, beyond hope. That 
instant set me free, Martin, free to..." 

The old man's heart was beating like a 
trip-hammer- * c No!" he pleaded as the 
specter advanced. "Don't frighten me! 
Keep back! My heart!" 

But young Martin Kleber advanced re- 
lentlessly, arms outstretched* Old Martin 
emitted a single shattering cry of terror, 
just before his weakened heart collapsed. 

When servants finally came in answer 
to the fearful death shout, the old man 
was * already dead...lyfng awkwardly on 
the floor of the empty room...

EVERAL WEEKS AGO we got an 
excited telephone call from our printer. 

"Wow!" he fairly screamed into the phone. 

<<J rhat last issue of f Forbidden Worlds' \ it 

was the greatest! Everybody in the plant 
is reading it! Secretaries, printers, iino- 
typers, switchboard girls, they're all so 
engrossed "we can't get a lick of business 
done!'* 

*e apologized for throwing a monkey 
wrench into the operations of his firm, but 
afterwards we sat back rather pleased with 
ourselves. After all, everybody enjoys 
having his efforts crowned with success. 
And we remembered how hard the work had 
been, gathering together the best writers, 
artists, and researchers from the four cor- 
ners of our great country. Finally, with our 
staff assembled, we set about the formid- 
able task of producing a supernatural comic 
that would be without a rival in the field. 
Yes, there were great efforts, great hopes, 
andvast amounts of money bound up in these 
operations, and when our product was 
finally ready for sale, all we could do was 
sit back nervously and wait for your reaction. 

It wasn't long in coming. Almost instant- 
ly we were deliiged with mail from fans and 
dealers everywhere^ "Yes!" they chorused. 
( 'It's great! It's different!" But now every- 
body wanted more, more, more! But we 
refused to be hurried, for we had vowed that 
only the most gripping and spellbinding 



yarns would ever appear in the pages of 
''Forbidden Worlds'** And so we have con- 
tinued to put the same painstaking care 
into each issue, often taking* many months 
to bring a story to the vibrant perfection we 
crave, '( -' 

Now, if only for a moment, we can. sit 
back contentedly, for this issue is beyond 
doubt the greatest we've ever offered our 
fans* "The Vampire Cat!", an eterie tale of 
dark and . satanie evil, matches its superb 
illustration, "The Glory If and" is different^ 
a chilling tale born in the dank bayous of the 
brooding Louisiana ^wamps. A fascinating 
report of weird happenings in the uncharted 
jungles sent our researchers scurrying for 
details, and we're sure you'll agree that 
"The Winged Terror" is one of the most 
astounding stories in years. Aqd who could 
help but thrill to "The Death Slave", an 
action-packed supernatural drama replete 
with thrills and chills from grim start to 
overwhelming climax! 

We're sometimes asked how we know just 
what our fans want* It's simple* We just 
read your letters and act accordingly. The 
policies of "Forbidden Worlds" are based 
on your preferences, so please, let us know 
your reactions to this issue, simply by writ- 
ing to The Editor, "Forbidden Worlds", 45 
ft est 45th Street, New York 36, N. Y, We'll 
publish your comments as soon as possible. 
And now, let's dip into our mailbag;

"Dear Editor:* 

lama high school student, and after reading a recent issue of 'Forbidden Worlds' / have 
become greatly interested in the supernatural I especially enjoyed The Mummy's Treasure'. 

J Thank you for such a keen book, O i 

V- Marvin Ginsburg* Providence, R t I." 



.** 



"Dear Editor:* 

I've read many comics, but like 'Forbidden Worlds' so much I've almost quit reading the 
others. I'm sure many people feel as I do about iL I liked 'The Curse of Rada* best in 

your recent issue, I prefer stories about Voodoo,

"Dear Editor;- \ 

I have just finished your last issue of 'Forbidden Worlds' and found the story of 'the 
Unknown Vampire' one-'of the best I've truer VrtrA f*d like to see more yarns about vampires.

From Weakling to a 
Real He-Man 

You have changed 
me from a weakling 
to a real he-man. My 
chest has gone up 6 
inches, I am a solid 
mass of muscle from 
head to foot. Friends* 
and doctors I . have 
met have noticed a 
great change and 
some have even failed 
to recognize me!"

but you added at

life. I feel now as If

Health 100% Better

-"The benefits are 
wonderful! The first 
week my arm In- 
creased one inch, my 
chest two inches, and 
my health is 100% 
better. Dynamic Ten- 
sion is the best in the

enthusiastic reports from men all over the en- 
tire world! But what you want to know is 
"What can Atlas do for ME?" 

Just give me 15 minutes a day of your 
spare time— right in the privacy of your 
own home. That's all I ask* Even in that 
short time ril start giving RESULTS. 
The kind of results that you can SEE, 
FEEL, and MEASURE with a tape! 
And there's no cost to you if I fail! 

I can broaden your shoulders, 
strengthen your back, develop your 
whole muscular system, INSIDE 
and OUTSIDE! I can add 
inches to' your chest, give you 
a vise-like grip, make those 
legs of yours lithe and power- 
ful, I can shoot new strength 
into your old backbone, exer- 
cise those inner organs, help you cram your body so full 
of pep, vigor and red-blooded vitality that you won't feel 
there's even "standing room" left for weakness and that 
lazy feeling! Before I get through with you I'll have your 
whole frame "measured" to a nice new, beautiful suit of 
muscle! And you'll be using the method which many great 
athletes use for keeping in condition — prize fighters, 
wrestlers, baseball and football players, etc. _
