Planetary Stories #9
Shelby Vick, www.planetarystories.com / "The Return of Space Opera", reads the logo on the great color cover by Ross Chamberlain. Follows the best fiction published in fanzines (Jerry Page's "The Assassin" is one of several stories by the Rebel/Phoenix/Rubble winner; Taral Wayne also contributes). Lee Gold's "dialog" with Ben Stein deals with Christmas' impact on Jews. A winner is chosen in an ongoing contest to recreate a classic pulp cover. Shelvy has been at this a long time and this is spiffy skiffy stuff. Be sure to check out previous issues, too: nothing else out there like it.
