Zack: I have a theory about what happened to magazines like MAN STORY and others: guys don't read any more; they watch videos. I think those straight-to-video movies are what replaced those stories you mentioned. I don't know of any websites devoted to them, but a few years ago some card company did a couple of sets of cover reproductions (crummy quality, I'm sorry to say).

And speaking of Christmas presents, someone just gave me a copy of a 1984 GALLERY magazine that has a short story by Robert B. Parker. "Surrogate" is the title. Does anyone know whether it's been reprinted?
