Comments and Reviews

 this item should be moved to ''magazine cat''.

this is a mis-catalogued - reasonably understandably° - issue of a magazine:

this is issue no.15 of supernatural stories,
edited by ''john s. manning'',
a house name of publishers john spencer & co.,

here disguising the identities of variously senior partner, sam ''sol'' assael,
and junior partner (though older than sam(uel)) maurice/michael nahum,
the two were the founder-publishers of john spencer & company; they tried various imprints, eventually settling upon badger books as their major imprint.

i've no idea whether they co-edited any of the issues of supernatural stories - and it's possible no-one now amongst the living remembers...°°

°° - ''oo-eee, oo-eee, oo-eee...'' (and other similar appropriately eerie super-natural fx, etc.) </fx>

° - from supernatural stories #40, the contents of alternating entire issues of supernatural stories were a single novel, and might perfectly reasonably have been regarded as paperback novels, had they not borne upon their covers, and often title pages, the information that they were issues of supernatural stories. these single novel issues were later consistently - well, fairly consistently - puff-lined ''supernatural specials'', leaving only the SN- prefixed cat#s as indicators of their origin.
