as all tales of Atlantis interest me. However, sir–permit me to correct you. On page 712 when David is accosted by the two Europeans, the German Leutnant should have asked 'Woher kommen Sie?' not 'Woher kommst du?'

Incidentally, I am gratified at numerous appreciations in the Eyrie of my own efforts to be horrible in small compass."


Arthur L. Widner, Jr., writes from Bryantville, Massachusetts: "They say competition is the life of trade and it seems to be true also in the case of artists. The picture of the Donna Marchesi on the October cover is the best Brundage cover I have yet seen. In fact, I would say it was the best weird cover I have yet seen by anybody. I can just imagine Mrs. Brundage wielding a wicked crayon, and muttering to herself, "So that young whippersnapper, Virgil Finlay, thinks he can show me up! Hmmph–I'll show
