  • Notes: The only date on the copyright page is 1978, with the assigned to Dale Books. Distributed in Canada, UK and Australia by Magnum Books ISBN 0-458-93550-6 is also on the copyright page, without a printing noted or a number line. The only publisher on the title page is Dale Books. The book is printed in the US but only Canadian and UK prices [95p for the latter] are on the front and back covers, nothing for Australia. Cover Painting by Greg Theakston. Interior drawings by Frank Kelly Freas, Rick Sternbach, George Barr, Alex Schomburg, Freff, Dan Simpson, Vincent D. Fate [actually credited that way], & Jack Gaughan is a the bottom of the TOC page. The cover art is plainly signed as are most of the interior pieces. Those are specifically credited in the contents listings. The drawing for Will Academe Kill Science Fiction? on page 63 is signed Tim Kirk - With Apologies to Rembrandt Van Rijn but Kirk is not mentioned as an artist in the credits. There is only one drawing unsigned/uncredited but the credit statement [other than the omission of Kirk] leaves two artists unaccounted for [Simpson and D. Fate].
