Afraid I don't know anyone at any of the four libraries listed as
having MIDNIGHT ZONE -- perhaps Mike Glyer, as a fellow semiprozine
editior, might know someone who has a set. Or is anyone here at (1)
Texas A&M, (2) Univ. of Miss., (3) Cornell, or (4) Library of Congress?
My own strangest glitch in bibliography was finding a spurious item
-- that is, a piece someone else wrote and signed my name to.
Fortunately it was only a letter to the editor of a D&D comic book
(basically the editors wrote themselves a fan letter, saying what a
great job they were doing, and claimed it was from me). If I'd known
about it at the time I would have raised all kinds of stink, but I
didn't find out about it until two years later, when it seemed a
little late to call them to account.
On a much simpler note, I don't seem to be receiving MYTHPRINT
anymore. Whom in the Society should I contact to find out whether my
subscription has expired? I'm told my review of Blackham's book did
appear in a recent issue (November?), but I don't have the issue
number or page number.
