Truly it is mysterious and intriguing.



Quite highbrow with a Sidney Lanier reference.


One of several Virgil Finlay’s in this issue.

Here is another one.

These last three illustrations have been from the Seabury Quinn story.


Look out, it’s Davy Crockett.

Also from “The Red Swimmer.”



Not many haunted aviation stories anymore.

The question of who wrote Almuric when is still circulating.
