“Mind Over Matter”

Creator: Donald C. Wilson
Age rating: Everyone
A psychiatrist develops the ability to transfer his mind into other peoples’ bodies. However, during the process of these tense transformations the strain overtaxes his brain, slowly driving him into a madness of a murdering, knife wielding sexual psychopath!
Synopsis: The story opens in the dead of night as a long, black limousine careens crazily onto a wide bridge. As the automobile squelches to a halt, one of the doors is flung open and two men roll out, embraced in a struggle for their lives! When a police car races up behind the limousine and stops, one of the two battling men picks up the other and throws him over the bridge railing, pausing in place until he hears a loud splash!..The man turns back to the two startled policemen and collapses at their feet!
When the man regains consciousness at police headquarters he tells the officers his name is Dr. Brandon York, a close friend and associate of the murdered man, Dr. Harry Jiles. York explains that Jiles was a brilliant scientist who had developed the uncanny ability to transfer his mind into the body of another person. At first, York admits, he had remained skeptical until he found himself stark naked in bed with his wife one morning and an empty bottle of Jiles' favorite brandy, which he detests, laying on the floor next to his bed. York's wife told him how much she admired his suddenly aggressive sexual behavior, leaving him in a state of shock and bewilderment.
Dr. York didn’t see his friend for more than a year when he was contacted late at night by a young prostitute at his home. The woman informed York that Jiles was ill and desperately needed his help. When York went to the inner-city location and found his friend, he discovered a bedraggled Jiles, weak and sick, looking much older than his years. Jiles told York that he could no longer control this power and that each transformation was overtaxing his brain, slowly driving him insane. York took his friend home, nursed him back to good health and helped Jiles regain his position on the staff of the university. Jiles’ life became seemingly normal until a sudden series of unexplained rape-murders began happening at the college.
As the police closed in, suspecting that Dr. Jiles may know something about the murders, Jiles confessed to York that he indeed, had turned into a sexual psychopath who was completely out of control. York had Jiles admitted to his clinic to try and restore his mental and physical well-being. When the police traced Jiles to the clinic, Jiles’ mind moved into another doctor’s body and exploded into a raving maniac, killing a patient! When York arrived at the clinic Jiles attacked him with a butcher knife! The two men had a fierce struggle until York was able to inject Jiles with a strong tranquilizer and carried him out to his limousine. Before York could make it to the bridge, Jiles recovered and the life and death struggle ensued!
