More Astounding’s arrived in yesterday’s mail

Here’s what was waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday:

That stack contains the Nov/Dec ’39 Astounding’s which include E. E. “Doc” Smith’s “Gray Lensman”; the Feb/Mar ’40 Astounding’s which include Heinlein’s “If This Goes On…” and the first part of Hubbard’s “Final Blackout”; and the May, July, August, November and December 1940 issues of Astounding.

The July, August, October ’39 issues are enroute, as is the January 1940 Astounding and 8 others scattered through the 1940s.

The next issue I need for continuity is the April 1940 issue. But I have some time to look for it at this point. Boy, I can barely sit still. I’ll be on pins and needles until the July ’39 issue arrives.
