OUR COVER

Illustrates this month's story, "The Crystal Egg", by H. G. Wells. This is a supposed view of the planet Mars, as viewed by Mr. Cave through the Crystal Egg, from the earth.

COPYRIGHT ACKNOWLEDGMENT

"Off on a Comet", and "A Trip to the Center of the Earth" by Jules Verne, copyright 1911, by Vincent Parke & Co., (Parke, Austin & Lipscomb Co.)

In Our Next Issue:

"DOCTOR HACKENSAW'S SECRETS", by Clement Fezandié, by popular requests. A new and hitherto unpublished story of the great and illustrious Dr. Hackensaw, which can not fail to hold your interest from start to finish.

"THE RUNAWAY SKYSCRAPER", by Murray Leinster, a story of the Fourth Dimension, in which the great Metropolitan Life skyscraper in New York vanishes into the Fourth Dimension. One of the most surprising tales we have ever read. (This story was scheduled for the May issue, but had to make room for the Jules Verne story).

"THE SCIENTIFIC ADVENTURES OF MR. FOSDICK", by Jack Morgan. Perhaps you did not know it, but there can be excellent humor in scientifiction. One, of the most excruciatingly funny stories, which at same time is an excellent piece of scientifiction, is entitled "Mr. Fosdick Invents the Seidlitzmobile."

"A TRIP TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH", by Jules Verne, (second installment), wherein our heroes have now penetrated to subterranean depths and find a tremendous number of surprises.

"WHISPERING ETHER", by Charles S. Wolfe, a radio story that holds your interest and injects quite a few new thoughts into a well-known subject. One of the greatest short stories we have ever seen. (This story also was due for publication in May, and was crowded out by the conclusion of the Jules Verne story, "Off On a Comet").

Another weird story by Edgar Allan Poe, which we are sure you will like.
