The Death Wish

From the February 1954 issue of The Unseen #13, this quaint little post-Valentine knife to the heart wraps up our look at doomed romances this week, along with the awesomely misleading cover illustration and a 2-page text story of the same hopeless nature.










NEXT: When there's no more room in Hell...

The story is kind of ridiculous. Bruce is flying over Canada and then crash-lands in what appears to be the Amazon jungle.

Goblin, you say "ridiculous" like it's a bad thing!

Okay, hope everyone has a nice weekend, and thanks for the comments. For the next few posts THOIA will be presented in glorious BLACK & WHITE--- magazine size terror is on the way!

Love this blog! Is there any chance you could post more stories from the Christopher Lee Treasury of Terror book?

Did anyone else notice this?
Bruce the pilot is in British Columbia but crashes in what is obviously the tropics.
Oy vay! Otherwise... palm trees in Canada?
But that's okay! There may be a message in that as well.
