Earl Norman

The Earl Norman books are becoming extremely rare, and publishers don’t seem to be interested in reprinting the series. The only way some of us may ever have all the stories is for collectors to scan and type the stories into PDF to swap with other collectors. I have already completed PDFs of HANG ME IN HONG KONG and KILL ME IN ROPPONGI. I am working on KILL ME IN YOKOSUKA. If other collectors would do the same for some of the other books, we could eventually have PDFs of all ten books. Why not help? I can be contacted at fadingshadows40@gmail.com

The Cave of The Chinese Skeletons

Curt Stone #1: “The Cave of The Chinese Skeletons” by Jack Seward. The Army CIC has information that somewhere in the mountains of Japan is a cave containing gold, silver, paintings, and other treasure secreted by the Japanese at the end of the war. Army Counter Intelligence Corpse is aware that the Chinese intelligence is also looking for it. The Japanese officer who hid the treasure was tortured and killed by the Chinese, but CIC doesn’t believe they forced the location from the officer before he died. They put one of their agents on the case, and hire Curt Stone to investigate for them, offering a piece of the bounty when he brings it in. It’s a pretty good story, but again not as much action and fun as the Burns Bannion series. It’s still a fun read, but Stone should have been tougher.
