Dr. John West, Cambridge don and private investigator, was present at the trial of an odd duck, R.A. Adcock, who was being most uncooperative in answering questions about a bank robbery. At length, Adcock had made a dash for it from the courtroom - through a glass window, and what should have been a three-story drop to the street. But suddenly Adcock just wasn't there, and at once a swarm of bees came into the courtroom. Thus begins The Molecule Men, which takes many fascinating and terrifying turns to its chilling conclusion.
In the second story, The Monster of Loch Ness, Tom Cochrane, an independent scientist, determines to find out why the waters of Loch Ness are inexplicably warming up. What was it that caused the waters of the loch to pour up into the air like the worst rainstorm any of the observers had ever seen? What was at the bottom of the lake?
These two short novels by a celebrated father-and-son team will hold the interest of the science fiction fan from page one on. [via]
