KIRKUS REVIEW

Treasure unburied from the pages of this magazine gives a more permanent form to stories with permanent value and often a highly literate appeal. There's Jack London's amazing, horrifying woman who tempts a native boy into shark-infested waters with a sovereign; Ray Bradbury's mournful Beast from 20,000 Fathoms; Robert Nathan's feathery fantast- The Snowflake and the Starfish; Bill Adams' stowaway youngster who proves to be a staunch sailor; Arthur Gordon's story of a man's combat with a sea-devil in the dark of the moon; Forester's Hornblower; etc., etc. Two novellas, Forester's Dr. Blanke's First Command and H.E. Bates' The Cruise of the Breadwinner complete. The market should be waterfast for some time to come.
