April, 1975. $1.00 is the original price. Eighty-two pages. Tight binding. Light beige paper except it's very slightly darker from age for about ½" at the margins.
In General: About a 3" x ½" - wide strip's been water touched but there's little damage otherwise the Magazine's as listed. The light bar seen is from my Scanner and isn't actually on the Cover. For some reason or other the Scanner chose to show the light bar. Possibly it's from so much use over the years.
Story: The entire issue's just one Story divided into parts, like Chapters in a book. Written originally by Howard it just goes to show you that what Howard wrote was good. There's no comparison to what the Story is compared to what other people can write, pretending they can finish what he started before he died because, as far as I'm concerned. you can't equal Howard.
This one, "The Tree of Death" is quite good. I know it held my attention throughout the entire issue. Recommended. If I was just starting to collect I'd be keeping this but now I'm just an old. "Veteran" Collector from days of yore.
