Werewolf On Madison Avenue
EDWARD R. LIPINSKI
Jeff Foxlove, an expert advertising copywriter, is employed by The Cudmore Agency, known for producing crude, disgusting, and raunchy advertising campaigns. Jeff has no qualms about wading into the muck. He earns a respectable wage and has the interest of an aspiring but dimwitted actress. Without a doubt, Jeff is living his ideal life.
Jeff receives a vicious bite from a spooky, wild creature of the night while he is on vacation and exploring the Yucatan jungle at night under the light of the moon. After defeating the beast, he is shocked to see that his injuries have miraculously healed and that the attack from the previous night has vanished the following day. When Jeff returns to New York to restart his life, he endures the agony of a terrible metamorphosis on the night of the next full moon. The full moon’s magic has turned him into a werewolf.
“Werewolf On Madison Avenue” follows Jeff’s journey as a werewolf and the man behind a wildly successful new ad campaign. As he becomes increasingly desperate to lift the curse of lycanthropy, Jeff realizes his only hope is to return to the Yucatan jungle in search of a miracle cure.
1. “These people you say you killed, were any of them our clients? No! Then it’s not serious.”
2. “You don’t have to go to the police. Trust me, Jeff. I’ll see that you don’t kill again.”
3. “There may be a way to lift the curse of the werewolf, but it lies deep within the jungle of the Yucatan, where the creature of the night dwells.” 4. “There is no such thing as a lie in advertising. There is only creative embellishment.”
VISIONS OF DESTINY
EDWARD R. LIPINSKI
From all appearances, Henry Gainsvort seemed to be a typical, average boy. But at the tender age of 8 years old Henry had an uncanny vision where he glimpsed into the future and saw an event happen moments before it actually occurred. As Henry matured, he had many more visions of the future-a brief glimpse into destiny.
However, Henry’s prognostications were not always pleasant or fortunate, and soon his friends and acquaintances became guarded and wary of Henry and his weird predictions. Interest and curiosity turned into skepticism and suspicion. People avoided him because they didn’t want to hear his dark forecasts of the future and he soon became a social outcast.
Living alone in a dismal apartment in Sunset Park Henry resolved never to reveal his visions to anybody for fear that they would ridicule, distrust, and ostracize him. His reclusive hermit-like existence changed when a chance meeting with Augie Martello, a neighbor in his building, blossomed into a close friendship.
Adhering to his resolve, Henry tried to keep his clairvoyance a secret from his good friend, Augie, until an unexpected event brought it out in the open. Much to Henry’s surprise Augie was not put off by his visions. In fact, Augie encouraged Henry to use his predictive powers to make money. Together they visited casinos and racetracks to see if Henry could predict the outcome of gaming events.
Just when success was within their grasp, Henry had a tragic vision that ended everything and Henry was all alone again. Later another vision showed Henry that he could use his powers to reap rewards in a different realm. This time he was successful, but his sudden prosperity attracted the attention of the federal government and it moved to stop him.
Henry went back to his mundane reclusive existence. He continued to have visions but he was able to conceal them so no one would suspect that Henry Gainsvort was anything but an average ordinary guy. Everything was going well for Henry until he had a vision that was more alarming than any that he had ever had. He knew that he had to go to the authorities and sound the alarm, but when he did, he was met with ridicule and derision.
But the laughter and mockery stopped when the tragic event happened exactly as Henry predicted. At that point, the authorities knew that Henry Gainsvort was no mere screwball and they moved to isolate him and keep him under close observation. Before that could happen, however, Henry had two more visions: one of a violent and devastating accident and another dazzling vision that was a portent of a grand and glorious beginning yet to come.
