ARCTIC WINGS

Spring has come to White Bear Landing—

and so has the law, in the hands of Royal

Mounted policeman Bob Dixon, a man as

gruff, tough and good-looking as Russell

Crowe. More than once Dixon has meted

out justice with hard fists and hot lead, but

now the tables have turned. He’s been set

up as a murder suspect. Dixon’s only hope

is to let the trust of a good friend and the

love of a good woman lead the way to true

justice and redemption—on “arctic wings”.

INKY ODDS

Edward R. Murrow, Walter Cronkite,

Eric Sevareid—the greatest American

journalists of the 20th century all made

their names as war correspondents,

but none of them would beat out Bat

Conroy to a good story. When it comes

to the Japanese invasion of China, Bat’s

always been top dog... until now. An

unknown writer is stealing his thunder

and maybe even his job—and the most

shocking news of all is the true identity

of the elusive journalist.

THE BATTLING PILOT

Pilot Pete England’s humdrum airplane

routine is unexpectedly disrupted

when his company reassigns him

to transport a special passenger.

When his aircraft gets attacked by a

mysterious fighter plane, Pete realizes

he’s carrying dangerous cargo: a

princess! Her mission can turn the tide

of war, and it’s up to Pete to transport

her in one piece.

MAN-KILLERS OF THE AIR

Take a touch of Charles Lindbergh, mix

in a dash of Evel Knievel, throw in one

man-killing cat—and you’ve got a recipe

for adventure featuring the high-flying,

hard-living Smoke Burnham. Now, he’s

in a life-and-death race in pursuit of big

money... and big trouble. Because one

thing you can count on—in the air, in a

fight, or in his girlfriend’s arms—where

there’s Smoke, there’s fire.

UNDER THE BLACK ENSIGN

Long before Captain Jack Sparrow

raised hell with the

Pirates of the

Caribbean

, Tom Bristol sailed to hell

and back under the “black ensign”.

He’s served under the threat of the

cruel captain’s lash. He’s been accused

of murder. And he’s been left to die on

a deserted island. But his luck is about

to change. Together with a fiery woman

and a crafty crew, he raises a pirate flag

of his own, setting out to make love and

war on the open seas.

L. RON HUBBARD:

EXPLORER

I

n addition to his personal experiences and travels

as an explorer and prospector, master mariner

and daredevil pilot,

Hubbard conducted exhaustive

research, consulting vintage technical books, ancient travel

guides and forgotten literature. From that deep well of

knowledge, he brought an unsurpassed degree of historical

authenticity to his fiction. He said it best himself:

“I believe

that the only way I can keep improving my work and my

markets is by broadening my sphere of acquaintanceship

with the world and its people and professions.”

TROUBLE ON HIS WINGS

Johnny Brice is the best “picture-

chaser” for the newsreels... that is until

he rescues a golden-haired girl from

a ship burning at sea. Now, no matter

what he tries to do, “Jinx” as he calls

her, seems to keep him waist-deep in

trouble as they travel from Idaho to

the Orient chasing pictures for World

News.

YUKON MADNESS

There are all kinds of crazy, but there’s

only one “Yukon Madness”. And Royal

Mountie Tommy McKenna—a role made

for Canadian-born Glenn Ford—has

seen the terror that follows in its wake...

his partner murdered and fed to a pack of

wolves. Bent on revenge, McKenna sets

out to find the madman who did it, and

there’s only one way to get him—through

his girlfriend. But whose side is she on?

The trap has been set. The question is,

who is the predator and who is the prey?

Includes:

“The Cossack”

and

“The Small

Boss of Nunaloha”

TOMB OF THE TEN

THOUSAND DEAD

Before Indiana Jones was even a gleam

in Spielberg’s eye, one intrepid pilot flew

out of the sky... into a bit of hell on Earth.

Captain Gordon is flying a team of

anthropologists to the mountains of the

Middle East in search of ancient history.

But the discovery of a long-buried

map leads to high adventure, untold

treasure and cold-blooded murder....

Includes:

“Price of a Hat”

and

“Starch

and Stripes”

TWENTY FATHOMS DOWN

As daring and defiant as Kirk Douglas

journeying

20,000 Leagues Under the

Sea,

there’s no stopping diver Hawk

Ridley as he takes the plunge into an

ocean of untold riches and danger.

Fighting off ruthless rivals in search

of gold is nothing new to Hawk...

but fighting off a beautiful woman is

a different story. Is she an innocent

stowaway or a seductive saboteur? The

answer comes twenty fathoms down—as

Hawk makes a discovery that will blow

you out of the water.

MISTER TIDWELL, GUNNER

Imagine a young Laurence Olivier cast as

a scholarly Oxford professor—snatched

out of his bookish world and pressed into

service aboard Lord Nelson’s legendary

British fleet. Such is the life of Mister

Tidwell, Gunner. The professor is about to

get an object lesson in war, self-reliance...

and survival. Overwhelmed by the smell of

gunpowder, the sound of cannons, and the

sight of death, he will either experience the

sweet taste of victory... or the bitter taste

of his own blood. Includes:

“The Drowned

City”

and

“Submarine”

landed his disabled passenger plane

contract, Breeze is going up against a

his reputation, his life, and his love of a
