A separate small-press fantasy magazine from the editor of Weirdbook, mostly issued as a place for genre booksellers to sell (or at least advertise) their books - this 32 page first issue does include both front and back cover artwork by J. K. Potter, an interview with Robert Bloch, and a short Lovecraftian piece by L. Sprague de Camp ("H. P. Lovecraft And Edmund Wilson"). The item shown is declared to be in NF/Fine copy.
