the first vampire on Mars 
couldn't get a good night's sleep 
lost luggage

Reveling in the horror of Arthur Machen, whose dreadful visions (e.g., The Great God Pan; The White People), written a century ago, demonstrated the art of horror without graphic imagery.

the wood and wax space ship 
a bad choice for solar observations


spaceport bar pickup
she made herself at home
