It's not possible it's really been that long . . . is it?
I still have that issue.
I think MSMM was on it's last legs by this issue. MSMM published my first shoort story and I later did a series of mystery news columns in later issues. I treasure my connection to virtually the last of the pulps. It all ended too soon . . .

THAT was the first time I saw my name in print in a magazine. MSMM means a lot to me. Cylvia Kleinman was very encouraging to me, always writing little notes on the form, rejection.
