Synopsis for "Uncle Gideon's Gold"

Reprint of the 1st story from
Marvel Tales #117
(originally printed as Terror In The North)

Villagers claim the body that has been found is the victim of a werewolf, but an American hunter scoffs, and goes out into the storm in order to kill the timber wolf and bring it back. He sets up a tent to wait out the storm and his nerves begin to get to him. He thinks that the nearby howling he hears sounds almost...human. During his sleep, he feels an impending presence and is aware of a sharp pain in his arm. When he wakes he is terrified to learn that he has been bitten, as those who were bitten by a werewolf transform into one. He looks into the mirror at the bottom of the tent and sees a wolf's face glaring back at him. Giving in to despair, he uses the shotgun against himself rather than transform into the ravening beast. Outside the tent, the ordinary wolf that had been staring into the tent, turns and stalks away into the forest.

Mystic #23
(originally printed as Don't Shrink Sam's Head!)

A man wants to go to Jivaro country so he can acquire a shrunken head for his collection of horror memorabilia but is afraid of having his head shrunk, so he hires a scientist to treat his head so that it is unshrinkable. The chief captures him and makes him a deal that if they can't shrink his head, they'll give him one of theirs and let him go. He accepts, and they fail to shrink his head so let him go, but they succeeded in their process with the rest of his body.
