The Corroding Death
Been busy lately, but I do plan to return to documenting Operator 5 soon enough. I've managed to read "The Corroding Death" from the one-shot Scorpion pulp and found it to be a good novelette, even if it had a too-pat ending. But how can you say anything bad about a story which features a former Hollywood stuntman, a man dying of TB, an epileptic prophet youngster, and a mysterious killer who dissolves his victims? And it all takes place in an isolated castle!
