Synopsis for "The Old Witch"Edit

Helen Bennet brings an old woman named Mathilda home and gives her a place to stay. Her husband George is irritated that Helen is always bringing home stray kids or homeless people. He discovers that Mathilda is actually a witch who is attempting an elaborate spell that will enable her to switch bodies with the younger, healthier Helen Bennet. George carves a stake from an ash tree and drives it into Mathilda's heart. He then buries the body in the yard and tells his wife what he has done. Helen is furious at him and calls the police. The police arrive and question him at length. George shows them where he buried the body and tries to explain why it was necessary for him to kill the old woman. When the police disinter the remains, they find that it is actually Helen Bennet's body in the shallow grave and not Mathilda.

Synopsis for "The Strange Machine"Edit

The leader of the Spanish Inquisition (whom no one ever expects) intends to do away with a rival by presenting a strange machine that will prove he is in league with the Devil. He climbs inside to investigate how the machine works, but fails to anticipate that his rival was building a device that would automatically implement every torture yet devised.

  • The scan I'm reading of this issue has the same story for "The Living and the Dead" as the scan I read for Journey into Mystery Vol 1 13 so either this story was reprinted from the JIM issue or one of the scanners has made a mistake and included a different story with the same title into their scan.
  • "The Old Witch" reprinted in Dead of Night #8
  • "The Man in the Tomb!" reprinted in Tomb of Darkness #9
  • "Good Morning Mr. Smith!" reprinted in Tomb of Darkness #9
  • "The Strange Machine" reprinted in Uncanny Tales #5
