This was followed by the story "Dream's End" from A. Connell, and the serial "The Land of the Central Sun" by Park Winthrop, which ran in seven issues. Also featured were articles on pulp writers such as George Challis, H. R. Haggard, the Isaac Asimov history books, Argosy pulp artist Robert Graef, Ev. Bleiler’s SF: The Early Years, A.C. Doyle paperbacks, pulp fanzines, a Talbot Mundy book checklist, The Allan Quatermain Saga, and Bill Barnes.
