Synopsis:
The Kiska Airlines owner asks his pilots to deliver all sorts of illegal goods at $50 per trip, no questions asked. Janie, the owner's daughter, is very upset, knowing her father is a racketeer, but also curious as to why he is afraid of airplanes. When Kiska visits his analyist, he tells him that when he was younger, he saw a hairy walking tree (The Heap) near the wreck of a German plane. This causes Kiska to kill the psycholoanalyist, return to his factory, where Yost explains that he has found the Heap. Kiska goes crazy, shooting the pilot, who then shoots and kills Kiska.

Indexer Notes

Pencil credit revised by Craig Delich 2012-12-22. Unlike other stories, Peddy did not sign this story.....only Sachs, which leads me to add the question mark behind his name. Roy Thomas recently verified the Peddy pencil credit, so ? removed.
