|This issue reviewed here|
|Highsmith's "The Snail Watcher" first appears;|
Malamud's "The Angel Levine" is a reprint.
Goldsmith Lalli's ZD magazines could feature some weak
fiction choices from time to time (along with quite a few brilliant ones), but the packaging
was often self-sabotaging (and probably out of her control).
|Science Fantasy's covers would improve enormously the|
next year when Keith Roberts joined the staff...
|Henry James loved his horror.|
|The UK version, with its cover revamp, almost looked like a romance title.|
In this issue: first appearance of "Marmalade Wine" by Joan Aiken.
|The best image I could find of the relevant Short Story International issues...|
|1964 a good year for Miriam Allen deFord, clearly..|
|Actually, please Do miss Farnham's Freehold...|
|One of Popular Library's several reprint bookazines|
with fiction taken from their parent Thrilling Group
magazines...after several issues of Wonder Stories and
before a western companion began in 1965.
|Very sadly, Chase with no budget, put together on the|
fly after a last-minute publisher switch, looks only a bit
worse than does EQMM, and the other long-running
digests look perfunctory at best. London didn't try, at all.
|The December issue, the closest to relevant I could find.|
And, of course, I'm cheating by leaving out all the "true" confessions and "men's sweat" magazines that were wholly fiction, or close enough...but I think I'll forgive myself...most images here are courtesy of Galactic Central's captures...
