A Good Head On His Shoulders by Max Allan Collins
In Chicago, in the early thirties, gang wars are an everyday occurrence. Mobster Louie Carboni is used to such violence. But what can the hideous decapitation murders of seven college professors, courtesy of a maniac dubbed the Mangler, have to do with the mob? And what does the mobs personal doctor Dr. Stein have to do with the murdering Mangler? The answer lies in the Mangler himself a monster who once was a man as well as in the true identity of Dr. Stein, who has a very illustrious if infamous heritage. And by the end of this lightning-streaked, stormy night, gangster Carbonis status as head man in town will be brutally challenged.

"Wolf" by Max Allan Collins
At rustic Wagon Wheel Lodge, a vicious killer has struck, but while the police seek a man, the real predator is a werewolf. Jack Wolff has feasted upon the flesh of women for decades, a smooth, handsome charmer living off inherited money, moving from one hunting ground to another, as he takes victim after victim. At the lodge, his prey is a lovely, under-age teenage girl with abusive parents. Jack plays the savior while he has something far darker in mind...will the lecherous wolf strike again, with his usual impunity, or is an unknown adversary waiting in the darkness?

"A Fungus Among Us" by Steve Nubie
Molds. Spores and fungus. As the first occupants of the planet earth they would reluctantly surrender their domain to plants, insects and animals. But their surrender was not without a price. It's a debt about to be repaid with great interest when a fungus outbreak, that turns people into killer Zombies, may spread worldwide.

"Reincarnal" by Max Allan Collins
Under hypnosis at a party, hip young artist Nora Chaney becomes Heather, a high school girl attending a prom in the heavy metal eighties, where - making love in the parking lot with her boy friend - she is butchered by a sexually-deranged serial killer. Is the party game just Nora's vivid imagination running away with itself, perhaps fueled by her own hang-ups? But when Nora begins having vivid dreams that foretell current crimes by that same serial killer - still active all these years later - she joins with an investigative reporter to find and stop this madman...and avenge her death in a prior life.

Ever wonder what the dead might have to say when they are alone with each other? It turns out that the dead are neither comical nor menacing. They are just tired and lost and in search of peace. They are people like you and me who want to rest now that their work is done. The problem is, the system wants to continue to exploit them even beyond death. It's a grim proposition but the logical extension of our society when a sinister company reanimates corpses in order to provide free labor for the late night shifts in stores and garages.
