FANZINE FEROX!


THE ACOLYTE
Vol. 2 No. 4 (Whole number 8)
Fall 1944
Editor and Publisher: Francis T. Laney and Samuel D. Russell
Art Director: R.A. Hoffman
Cover: Alva Rogers
Pages: 34
Cover price: 15 cents

This is a classic fanzine, made in Los Angeles and created by people who obviously loved weird fiction, fantasy, films and the like. There's a lot packed into the few pages: stories by Anthony Boucher and Fritz Leiber, Jr., including a poem carrying the title of one of his most famous fantasy characters, "The Grey Mouser", a look at Lovecraft by E. Hoffman Price, an article "probably" by Lovecraft, an original drawing by Clark Ashton Smith, and numerous reviews. Very impressive!
