    In the golden age of pulp fiction, "The Tramp" was originally published in three parts (Sept-Oct-Nov) in "Astounding Science Fiction" in 1938. Afflicted by misfortune, the tramp, Doughface Jack caught by a policeman and a brakeman in a train yard tries to escape and is shot in the shoulder and is catapulted head first crushing his skull. A local doctor examines his wound and remarks "the mass was as soft as a swamp." Obviously, not a good sign, so the doctor sews the two halves of the brain together and caps the cranium with a silver bowl. Doughface miraculously survives and simultaneously acquires extraordinary mental powers. On the one hand, he can heal or make an old person young instantly, but on the other hand, he can kill with his glares. His killing powers remind one of Medusa, the gorgon in Greek mythology, perhaps best recognized by her head of living snakes and her gaze that turned living creatures to stone. In Jack's life the power to kill becomes a sobering reality and the meeting of a vindictive woman who will stop at nothing to get what she wants, complicates Jack's chaotic life even further.
