Comment: yep, Moonled, there are some lightweights in the field, but balanced out nicely by some heavyweights. I didn't even mind the Little Nemo rip-off...trippy.

Comment: About 1963 I bought a B&W photo of the cover of this issue from Fan Pioneer Jerry Bails. Today I read the great paper scans of a wonderful copy of the book. Many thanks to all involved!
