Captain Philip Strange: Strange Rivals

By Donald E. Keyhoe

A mental marvel from birth, who used his talents on stage as a boy, Philip Strange is now known as “The Phantom Ace of G-2″ by the Allies during WWI. There are a hundred ways to die in battle, but that won’t stop Germany from devising newer and crazier methods. If it’s face-melting plagues, swords of light from the sky, rivers of blood or killer fog, only one man in G-2 Intelligence has the uncanny abilities needed to cheat these new kinds of unnatural death: Captain Philip Strange, the Brain-Devil! Whether fighting Allied traitors or a medieval executioner, when death ets strange, Strange comes alive! Thrill to eight of the strangest cases yet from the pages of Flying Aces magazine!

Take another trip through the imaginings of Donald E. Keyhoe, where the WWI war skies are filled with giant bats, invisible fire, and beautiful spies. And where America turns to its own unnatural secret weapon: Captain Philip Strange. A mental marvel from birth, he was so terrifyingly effective as the Allies’ top agent that the Germans were offering a king’s ransom for his death. In this ninth and final volume of the series, arch competitors on stage become deadly enemies in war! Philip Strange, the Mental Marvel, meets Karl von Zenden, the Man of a Thousand Faces, in a return engagement. Step right up for the craziest double-bill in peace or in conflict. Also appearing for a limited time: flying skeletons, ghost aces, and sky pirates. Can America’s “Brain-Devil” bring down the curtain on this cursed menagerie, or will he finally be upstaged by his evil opposite?
