Deadly City (1953) as by Ivar Jorgensen
You’re all alone in a deserted city. You walk down an empty street, yearning for the sight of one living face—one moving figure. Then you see a man on a corner and you know your terror has only begun.

Ten From Infinity (1963) as by Ivar Jorgensen
Ten men walked Earth–ten men in different cities in the United States. Each one was the exact replica of the other–from the tips of his fingers down to the beating of his twin hearts. Where they came from, they were called androids–synthetic men, conditioned by their masters to complete their deadly purpose on Earth as advance agents for an invasion from space. The only man who knew of their existence was Brent Taber, secret agent, specially commissioned to find out their plans and avert the world’s destruction. The big problem was to figure out a way to appeal to the mindless, soulless creatures who knew no emotion-pleasure or pain. But every move he had made so far had ended in failure and time was running out–for him and everyone on the face of the Earth…

The Beasts in the Void (1956) (The book & magazine variants)
Imagine being trapped on a spaceship hurtling through the outer reaches of the galaxy at warp speed—alongside a menagerie of giant, bloodthirsty creatures. That’s the improbable but pulse-pounding plot of Paul W. Fairman’s short tale, The Beasts in the Void. If you’re hankering for a classic sci-fi tale packed with plenty of adventure, it doesn’t get much better than this.

The Girl Who Loved Death (1952)
Nick Saturday, private eye, went out to find Helen Burdette, lost gal. He had the right town and the right street — but the wrong world.
A nice entertaining SciFi story in the multiple-worlds tradition, mixed with a hard-boiled PI of little imagination (Joe Friday, meet Nick Saturday). The title is totally misleading, but goes well with the gorgeous pulp cover.

The Man Who Stopped at Nothing (1951)
Two worlds were struggling grimly for possession of his limp body. But Dorn didn’t mind. His soul was too occupied enjoying the luscious nude picking her wardrobe in Swank’s store window.
A delightfully light-hearted and saucy story of afterlife, of a sort, and human skulduggery.
