  • Notes: Vol 30, No 8. Attributions for interior art from signature if present and legible. The editorial is a fictitious dialog between "Fan" and "Ed." which indicates that Paul W. Fairman has taken over editorship of the magazine even though Howard Browne is still credited. There are indecipherable initials on two pieces of artwork which appear to be an 'in' or 'im' nearly encircled by a C. The artwork for "Death of a Dinosaur" is signed with initials that appear to LL (Llewellyn?). "The Beast with 7 Tails" is listed as "The Beast with Seven Tails" on the cover but as "The Beast with 7 Tails" in the table of contents and title page of the story.
