THE DIGEST ENTHUSIAST continues to be one of the very best publications out there. I mean, look at that line-up. Highlights for me are the in-depth looks at SUSPENSE MAGAZINE, SHOCK MYSTERY TALES, and the Galaxy novels, plus some great fiction including a Brother Bones story by Ron Fortier. The Bulldog Drummond review also sparked considerable interest on my part, since I've read one of the books in that series and have been wanting to get around to the others for a long time. If you have any interest in digest magazines, you really need to be reading THE DIGEST ENTHUSIAST.
