Revenge isn’t the only dish served cold...
From the New York Times best-selling author hailed for her “inimitable, take-no-prisoners style” (Kirkus Reviews), Cold Betrayal forces Ali Reynolds to confront the face of evil, and the women who are being hunted. See more from J.A. Jance

Book Description


• Revised edition includes 22 original illustrations/photographs

• Also Includes nonfiction bonus chapters revealing the latest research and revelations regarding the alleged Roswell UFO crash in Roswell

• A declassified FBI report triggered by congressional inquiry into cattle mutilations and its conclusions.

• Eyewitness account and affidavit of a former aide to President Eisenhower, who claimed to be involved in a Top Secret program reengineering Roswell UFO debris for the Pentagon.

The title of this 416-page-illustrated volume says it all. But what it doesn’t say is the fun I had searching for weeks for these relatively unknown gems of Sci-Fi pulp dating from as early as 1941.

If you like story, plot, adventure without the fluff and soft edge, this collection is definitely for you.

Such masterpieces as “Subversive,” “The Creature from the Cleveland Depths,” or “The K Factor,” are designed of hardcore and hardboiled fans only!
In truth, the whole collection is hard not soft Sci-Fi.

I hope you enjoy this treasure trove of vintage stories as much as I did.

PS As mentioned, at the end of this treasure trove, I ‘ve included some very interesting and thought-provoking non-fiction research about real UFOs and alleged extraterrestrials.

Vintage science fiction is sui generis. These collections are the only way to relive the forties heyday. Want more of these.

5.0 out of 5 stars treasure trove of vintage sci-fi pulp February 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a real treat! It's almost like reading the scripts for vintage "twilight zones". The first story is so eerie as it seems a mirror of our 21st century society, we predominantly work in service industries, fewer large conglomerates make everything! Is there some conspiracy? LOL?? Loved this book

2.0 out of 5 stars crummy layout, stingy content September 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The stories and articles are not bad, though certainly not anywhere near the "Best" of 1941 to 1962 pulp scifi. Obviously this poorly formatted Kindle e-book was cobbled together with a few (very few, considering the grandiose title) random winners of minor scifi short story awards. These stories appear to have been apple-picked from pulp mags to fill out a container for some government documents the "editor" thought might be a hot item in the UFO community. No excuse for poor craftsmanship. I really can't abide inept formatting in Kindle books. There's no excuse for not taking the time to set up a proper table of contents with individual link from TOC listing to title page of each story, also no excuse for not starting each new story on a fresh page. The fact that half the time the Amazon text-to-speech feature doesn't work right in this book is a further annoyance which probably stems again from faulty formatting and/or punctuation. There is no content in this publication thrilling, rare, or interesting enough to serve as excuse for this shoddy piece of work. Only buyers thrilled with the content despite the crummy layout should refrain from returning this Kindle book as faulty merchandise and demanding a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Stuff April 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great content if you like the classic sci fi. Priced right. Not novel length stories, more like one or two per evening and most enjoyable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good book. May 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm becoming addicted to these books. Most of the stories here are very entertaining. Only a few are actually dull,but that also is subjective. Like the old sci-fi movies of that era,this is a wonderful slice of American culture,that I hope will not become just a footnote to future generations. Highly recommended,and enjoy.

Lowered Expectations
Formatting problems are a deal-breaker with me as well. If they disrupt my reading too frequently, I return the Kindle book and request a refund on the basis of a faulty product. Authors and editors need to take pride in their work, even when it's only a bargain-priced compilation of others'... Read More
