I.

We are accustomed to speak with a certain light irony of the tendency which women have to gossip, as if the sin itself, if it is a sin, were of the gentler sex, and could by no chance be a masculine peccadillo.

Where will you find, in or out of literature, such ...

A Joaquina do Espinhal tinha ido, no fim da tarde, lavar ao rio a roupa dos pequenos. Era no mez de dezembro. A agua corria por entre os choupos, fria e levemente encrespada pela brisa que soprava do norte. Joaquina do Espinhal, com as saias arregacadas na cintura, as pernas ...

Grove of the Unborn

First Page:

Glamorous Lyn Venable of Dallas, Texas, makes a first appearance in these pages (but by no means her first appearance in this field), with this sensitive story of a young man who needn't have run. A contributor to William Nolan's (OF TIME AND TEXAS, November, 1956, Fantastic Universe) famous Ray Bradbury Review , Miss Venable wants, very very much, to be a part, albeit small, of the comeback of science fiction that is seen today, as she wrote us recently.

The Sword and the Atopen

By TAYLOR H. GREENFIELD

The conversion of light into electricity by spectrum is an interesting possibility. The idea of using foreign proteins on the human system to repel enemies, is also interesting. Do you get it? We didn't either until we read the story. Read the yarn and you'll get it too.

Although Divine intervention in human affairs passed into the realm of the mythical toward the end of the twentieth or at the dawn of the twenty first century, one is almost inclined to give thanks to the Supernatural for...

Texas Week

First Page:

One of the chief purposes of psychiatry is to separate fantasy from reality. It is reasonable to expect that future psychiatrists will know more about this borderline than the most learned doctors of today. Yet now and again even the best of them may encounter situations that defy all logic.

Meeting the little man who isn't there is rated an horrendous experience. But discovery that the man is there may be even worse.
