THE MOSQUITO NET - Arthur Mills (The Bystander - October 1936)
Flynn is convinced that young Grimsby is having it off with his wife. Flynn has a plan to kill Grimsby, to drape his bed with a mosquito net covered with infernal mosquito eggs. Not only has Flynn got the wrong end of the stick, a local witch doctor wants Flynn on the business end of a spear. Who'll kill who first?
