I did a double-take on this post. The Spider stories were the
work of Norvell W. Page ((1904-1961)under the name Grant
Stockbridge, not Gerald W. Page, who edited the DAW Best
Horror anthologies before Karl Wagner took them over. Jerry
Page would probably be flattered by the mixup as he is a
member of the PulpMags Yahoo list that I also belong
Not to give you a hard time as I am always doing this "almost
but not quite" type mixup. One I've made several times (at
least twice on this list) is to refer to the Gold Medal
novelist Gil Brewer as "Gay Brewer." I blame that on my time
as a newspaper sportswriter back when Gay Brewer was one of
the top golfers in the PGA.
