Yesterday, I received in the mail the February 1943 issue of Astounding. The issue contains part 1 of A. E. van Vogt’s serial “The Weapon Makers.”
When I turned to the contents page, I noticed another story in the issue that gathered some fame and popularity in the years since. It was even made into a movie (which I will admit I didn’t see). Henry Kuttner and C. L. Moore, teaming up as Lewis Padgett present a little story called “Mimsy Were the Borogoves.”
And for those who don’t know it, that serial, “Opposites–React!” by Wil Stewart is none other than Jack Williamson in disguise. Looks like a fun issue that will make up Episode 44 of my Vacation in the Golden Age in June of next year.
I’m expecting a few more issues to arrive later this week.
