SMFS Members Published in Black Cat Weekly #84


Two SMFS list members were published yesterday in Black Cat Weekly #84. Published by Wildside Press, the issue is available here in digital format. The SMFS members in the issue are:


Bev Vincent with “The River Heights Ripper.”


Stacy Woodson with “Before the Highwaymen.”


Website Description: 

Our 84th issue features a pair of original mysteries from Bev Vincent and Stacy Woodson. Plus we have a Bryce Walton Hollywood crime story and a Frank Kane mystery novel (featuring detecive Johnny Liddell). And, of course, a solve-it-yourself puzzler from Hal Charles.

On the science fiction side, we have an anti-war story from Richard Wilson, a UFO story from Paul Torak, a rather silly science fiction/detective story from Noel Loomis, and a time-travel tale from Lester del Rey. Plus a pre-Golden Age science fiction novel from oldtime master Ray Cummings: The Man on the Meteor, which appeared in Science and Invention in 1924, two years before Amazing Stories and the genre of science fiction were launched!

Here’s the complete lineup:
