Many years ago, so long ago that even your editor was a teenager, an ambitious youngster named Jerome Siegel (who was later, as a writer, to create SUPERMAN) wrote a story called "Visitor from Antares," Sam Moskowitz, the great historian of science fiction happenings, tells us that the young Siegel sold his story to Amazing Stories magazine but it never saw print. Word reaches us that this same "Visitor from Antares" plus a sequel, "Miracles on Antares" has been put into script form, and a ClevelandChicago syndicate plans to film it "with the most incredible cast in the history of filmdom!" Antares is a distant star; and, if she doesn't prove too distant, Faith (THIS ISEARTH) Domergue will be sought to star in the Siegel scientifilm

The upper reaches of the Amazon, as every schoolboy from here to Pellucidar knows, is the domain of the Creature of the Black Lagoon. The lower reaches ah, that's a different matter, and one we're about to explore via the great Paramount technicolor picture of 1940: DR. CYCLOPS. On a forbidding knoll above the Karana River, at the headwaters of the mighty Amazon, is the mysterious experimental laboratory of Dr. Alexander Thorkel, rare civilized man in the Iquitos territory. The Peruvian natives thereabouts are suspicious and superstitious. The weird lights and sounds that come from Thorkel's jungle retreat make the natives restless.

Thorkel gets guests


A scientific party arrives to be of assistance to the doctor (played by Albert Decker with a Yul Brynner butch). They are;
Bill Stockton, mineralogist. Dr. Rupert Bulfinch, biologist. Mary Phillips, the biologist's assistant. And Steve Baker, prospector looking for Inca gold who agrees to lead the other 3 to Thorkel.

The recently arrived foursome is only displaying normal scientific curiosity but Dr. Thorkel (who probably was a little odd to begin with) seems to feel that they're poking their noses too much into his business. So he decides to shorten them. Not just their noses, but their whole bodies. In short order, Bill, Mary, Dr. Bulfinch and Steve, plus Dr. Thorkel's man-of-allwork, Pedro, are hustled under the doc's shrinkoscope, and the next thing you know they're as small as 5 little all-day suckers! In fact, they're so small that if they tried to lick a stamp, the stamp would probably lick them instead

juice instead of blood!

2550 County Line Road Chesterland, Ohio Friday the 13th Dear Blood Brothers: Unaccustomed as I am to public creeping, I, Count Scalpela, feel that I must make an issue thru this, my favorite magazine, of an important topic: the scarypeutic value of togetherness for those who suffer the pangs of apartness from humanity due to the malady known as Draculitis. As a horrorble example of enduring togetherness, may I introduce to you, brave readers, myself and my bewitching bride. Plum O'Hagan. PLUM PUDDING Plum is the original Black Irish ban-she, a tasty morsel (not to be confused with mortal) whose bat-squeak giggle is in def rightful contrast to my tomb-deep Ghest-tqnes. We suit one another frightf oully well: she, with bat blood in her veins, is understandably flighty; I, the son of a coffin-maker, am understandably grave. We have been playful and slayful together, the O'Hagan and I, for close to 5 centuries now. Referring to us in her column. Noose from Horrorwood Heada Chopper said: "This couple may last." MARRIAGE BLISS-TERS Don't let me mislead you, however: we have had our hideously sunshiny moments when-our uniquely grisly romance has almost lost its harm. Experts warned us that after the first century of marriage boredom might set in, but we never imagined it might be such a grizzly bore. Almost un-bear-able. Apparently Plum and I were not batting about enough together at nites she began to feel the grass was grimmer on the other side where the cemetery was. In a word, my abhorred bride of a mere 100 summers began to cast sheep's eyes (the whole eyeball!) at a Youngarian upstart (that's a young Hungarian!)
