Comment: For those who skip the text stories, note that the first text story in this issue is by Jerome Bixby, author of the 1953 story "It's a Good Life" which was the basis for a 1961 episode of The Twilight Zone starring a wonderfully creepy Bill Mumy. He also wrote four episodes of Star Trek, and co-wrote the 1966 film Fantastic Voyage. These text stories give you the opportunity to see the first professional writing of writers who later became well-known!
