Welcome, Jerry! Jerry and I used to haunt the same used bookstores in Atlanta in the 1960s and 1970s. Those were the days when used paperbacks were two for a quarter (okay, a little more by the late 1960s) at the Peachtree Book Store and there was always Cantrell's on the square in Decatur where he gave out wooden nickels as promotional items. As I mentioned recently, Books Again on McDonough Street in Decatur is my current favorite.

I was just at Curt Phillips' house and saw his copy of the Mike Shayne issue with your story. I sold several stories to MSMM back then but some how I must have missed that issue.

Gerald Page since the 1960s, mostly science fiction and fantasy, but I did appear in Mike Shayne's Mystery Magazine toward its end. In the 70s I was the editor for DAW Books of the annual The Year's Best Horror Stories anthologies.
