More Description


"Vampires and wizards and aliens, oh my A splendid gathering, from the late lamented magazine, of modern science fiction and fantasy. Like the best of the 1950s pulps, Subterranean magazine did not cavil much about genre distinctions: if a sci-fi story strayed into horror or swords and sorcery, that was fine, so long as the story in question was good]] Fans of every stripe of speculative fiction will want this on their shelves."
