      THE MARS MONOPOLY — (Science Fiction) One of the famous Ace Doubles. From the original blurb: "A guy's gotta earn a living somewhere — and if it isn't on Earth, it might as well be on Mars. That is if the Syndicate would let you live on the red planet. Bert Schaun found himself washed-up as a round-the-world rocket racer, blacklisted by Thornton McAllister. He tried to make a new life for himself prospecting for uranium in the lonesome vastness of the asteroids. But McAllister's fury hunted him even to Mars; the issue became a struggle to stay alive against the dangers imposed by McAllister's interplanetary power. And then Bert found that he was not only fighting for his own survival, but for the survival, too, of a whole race of Martian outcasts. Singlehandedly, he had to combat genocide on the planet Mars!"

      ONE AGAINST HERCULUM — (Science Fiction) Another of the famous Ace Doubles. From the original blurb: "LEGAL ASSASSIN OF THE STARWAYS - Corruption was the rule of order on the domed planetary colony of Herculum. Earthman Alan Demuth, for instance, couldn't get the job he had rightfully qualified for without paying a kickback to the man he hated, Jack Bohannen. Alan thought he could simply report Jack's graft, until he learned none would listen. There was one desperate recourse. Under provision of the law, Alan could ask for a crime license. His crime would be homicide, and the victim Jack Bohannen. The law gave him twenty-four hours to make good his murder. Failure would mean Alan's death. Success would mean the clean-up of graft and dishonesty. But Alan never realized that in a graft-ridden society, even a license to kill is liable to prove a backfiring fraud!"

The going gets rough when a bomb in a piano explodes, a safety curtain drops and the tour faces a disastrous end.

      THE SPUN SUGAR HOLE — (Fiction) From an Amazon review: "Hail the bygone days of "hippie-dom" with this rambling tale of Psych Ward inmates who take off on a journey of a lifetime. I first read The Spun Sugar Hole back in the 70's, when, as an employee of the NY State Dept. of Mental Hygiene,(both in-patient and out-patient psychiatric units) I began to suspect that, all too often, the "crazies" were NOT the folks in the wards, but the "keepers of the keys!" Jerry Sohl's mix of odd and endearing characters "break out" of the sanitarium on a joyful feat of self-discovery, a-la Kesey's "Cuckoo's Nest." The timing of this book was/and still is, so perfect, as we of the Kennedy assassination, Viet-Nam, Summer of Peace and Love Generation, often find ourselves mirrored in each of the characters' personae. I will only say, that for all you Boomers, if you loved One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, then, do buy this book and thumb a ride on this zany trip to the Coast. You'll find yourself cheering for this "mixed bag" of inmates who are yearning to find meaning in what was a frightening and discombobulated world. I am writing this review in 2010 - - - a good 30 years after I first read "Sugar Hole," and the plot and characters are as fresh and vital today; perhaps even more so." (first published by Simon & Schuster)

      BLOW DRY — (Romance/Erotica) "A story of sex escapades" (written as "Nathan Butler", first published by Fawcett Gold Medal)

      KAHEESH — (Romance/Horror) "Nancy Howard is horrified when an old man with peculiar eyes gains a strange power over her husband" (written as "Nathan Butler", first published by Fawcett Gold Medal)

      DR. JOSH — (Romance) "She could look only into the eyes of "Dr." Josh, a gentle man who was trying so hard to make her feel better, and succeeding. His eyes were bright and fixed on hers. The gentle touch again, and again, only firmer now..." (written as "Nathan Butler", first published by Fawcett Gold Medal)
