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.
