A mad Mixture of Mummies, Maids and Mayhem

Luscious Linda was the kind of gal to make a mummy kick a hole in his sarcophagus. And there was the Belt of Osiris. It made old men young and young men — well anyhow. Linda spent all her time running until the mummy — oops! Don't want to give it away!

That's how this story was introduced on its magazine publication. It's a real old-fashioned archaeological adventure crossed with a screwball comedy, with various groups all working to get hold of the famed Belt of Osiris, which, legend has it, conveys immortality upon its wearer. Where's Indiana Jones when you need him?
