Sunday Morning Bonus Pulp: Fantastic Adventures, July 1947
This is an issue I read several years ago. The William P. McGivern novel is a pretty good one, starting out as a hardboiled espionage yarn before turning into a lost race story. When I was younger I knew McGivern only as a mystery writer (the local library had a number of his books) and was surprised when I found out how much science fiction and fantasy he had written. Also in this issue is a Toffee story by Charles F. Myers, and those are always entertaining. Plus stories by Theodore Sturgeon and several other writers I'm not familiar with, who may or may not have been house-names. I'm not a huge fan of FANTASTIC ADVENTURES, but there are some good stories to be found in it.
