Interview with Rick Ollerman, editor of Down & Out: The Magazine; writer Josh Pachter remembers Espionage Magazine; Manhunt; Robert Edmond Alter in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, The Occult Digest, James H. Schmitz’ character Telzey Amberdon, Future Publications, and "The One-and-Dones" Part 1 looks at the single-issue digests; plus fiction from Lesann Berry, Robert Snashall and Joe Wehrle Jr.

Also reviews of Switchblade #2, Pulp Literature #15, F&SF Jul/Aug 2017, and Down & Out #1, Suspense Stories, and Black Cat Mystery Magazine #1.

Illustrations and cartoons by Marc Myers, Michael Neno, Bob Vojtko, and Joe Wehrle, Jr. Cover by Joe Wehrle, Jr. Includes over 100 cover images, from contemporary digest to vintage issues from the 1940s and 1950s.

You would think that the world of Digests, as a subset of paperbacks, would be a pretty narrow specialty. But this excellent magazine disproves that theory, with coverage of writers, editors, classic titles both vintage and contemporary. And with some new fiction thrown in, it's a fun periodical with a lot to offer, even if you don't actively collect digests but simply want to learn more about pulp fiction, mystery and sci-fi writing.
