DEAD OF NIGHT (1973) #8 - Descriptive Bibliography

Plot Synopsis: Dead of Night (1973) #8
Shutter the windows and lock your doors as you curl up with another fine collection of dastardly and dreary tales from Marvel's dusty vaults. First off, watch in horror as 10-year-old Donald Dugan is terrorized by his creepy Uncle Claude, a man with murder in mind. With his parents away for the night, Donald is "Alone in the Dark" and at the mercy of his avuncular adversary; or does it just seem that way? Story by Stan Lee with art by Fred Kida (originally presented in Tales of Suspense #16). Next, did you ever accidently overhear a conversation that was so intriguing you couldn't turn away? That's what happened to "The Eavesdropper" who figured he'd found a way to make a quick buck blackmailing a couple of murder conspirators. As it turns out, though, the murder they were planning was his! (originally presented in Mystic #36).

Then, a hard-working husband comes home to find his lovely wife has taken in a homeless old crone off the street. And despite his protests, the houseguest gets to stay. But when the man overhears the woman casting a spell to switch bodies with his beloved wife, drastic measures have to be taken against "The Old Witch" (originally presented in Mystic #26). Finally, a hard-drinking scallywag finds an Inca treasure in the Peruvian Andes and plots to steal it from the poor villagers it might otherwise help. But instead of making him happy, the money curses him, turning him into "The Slave!" (originally presented in Uncanny Tales #3).
