| wwwaaaaaHHOOOOOO! D'JOURNAL
Not being able to read, you have
probably never heard of Fantasy ..
Fictions FIRST fun-fan Folio , ...
Featuring Funtastic Foolery before
have you? I didn't think so. This
is to acquaint you with it. It's
name is: D'JOURNAL. And all those
fffff's belong to it.
And, despite any other funtasy
magazine in the field, or any that
are likely to enter the field in
the near future, D'JOURNAL is THE
funtasy mag! Take a pee p at some
of the material lined up for the
second and third issues:
"FOUR WALLS DO NOT A PRISON MAKE"
by Ford De Menshen. (Nobody will
be able to guess the identity of
this mysterious author. It is ...
whispered tho that he is Anthony
Gilmore. We can give you a tip: He
lives on that crude west coast &
speaks Ackermanese): This yarn
by the way is apt to become our
first book-length novel, or two
part serial, it is that long.;
"REPORT ON THE FIRST PEORIA S-F
CONVENTION" by Peo ria Ike.;
"A LETTER FROM INJUN JOE", our
first D'JOURNAL NOVA story. (Oh
yes, that professional magazine
is imitating US!) This is by
Lan McPhail.; "A FAN IS DOOMED"
by Namahara, or better known as
Mary G. Byers, Doc, so dont call
her a 'Messer'.; "THE SCIENCE
CITY OF AMERICA" by Ron Renolds,;
"UNPUBLISHED SCRIPT FOR THE NEXT
TARZAN PICTURE" -- this scoop was
smuggled out of Hollywood to us
by Cecil Clayborne Cunningham ,
(Gad! What a name!) and is really
an oringal script.; " PIRLARK
PATROL" by Tony Strothers. You
dont want to miss the hairraising
|experi nces of Kibitzer Kimmerson
in this epic!; "ON THE CARE AND
FEEDING OF VAMPIRES" by Dr. Dick
Wilson,Jr. Pfffft. This important
treatise covers every known angle
on raising the little pets.;
"How to run a successful Ghost
Agency" by that hair-pulling
ghost-writer, Brian Eldred. Never
heard of him? Neither did we till
the MSS came. Maybe he IS a ghost.
"THE SKYLARK OF LOVE", another
on of those kibitzing things,this
one by Phlian Hyghe, whom also we
never heard of till the MSS came.
Say, Dr. EE can't have THAT many
friends!; "WRITING TH SCIENCE
FICTION YARN" by Harry Warner,Jr.
This one really belongs in the
"Writers Digest" magazine, but
we snatched it first.; and say,
did you know that D'JOURNAL has
exclusive reprint rights to the
material published by THE
FANTASY FAN, IMAGINATION, and
FANTASCIENCE DIGEST in years gone
past? (Well, almost exclusive!)
We have quite a bit of the more
humorous reprints from these fan
magazines coming up.
And D'JOURNAL is mutating too!
Our photographic covers of space
ships of the future are the talk
of the nation! (Sample on other
side.) In the issue we have
a bombastic cover on tap, somethin
extremely new and interesting!
And our departments are the
Zombie's pajamas: "WE VIEW WITH
ALARM" (editor); "OF ABSOLUTELY
NO INTEREST TO YOU" story fore-
cast by Bradbury; "CAUSTIC CON ENT"
(readers) and others.
