Issue Notes

shipping date: August 6, 2003. Most credits from the notes of Cat Yronwode (printed in Kitchen Sink's Spirit Magazines) and Lou Mougin. According to Martin O'Hearn who has access to Bill Woolfolk's records. http://martinohearn.blogspot.com/, Woolfolk's last Spirit script was written in October 1944. Therefore it is very unlikely there are any Woolfolk scripts in this volume.

Don Komisarow and Lou Fine formed an art studio together and went into the commerical art business around this time. Therefore Fine stopped relying on Quality to get his stories inked and relied on the much more consistent Komisarow.

Indexer Notes

Script previously credited to Manly Wade Wellman. I'm not seeing anything that links this to Wellman's style. No ellipses or sentence fragments or any of his favorite words. Expressions like MMMRRFFF and GWFF GAW MOT are not associated with any of the standard authors expected in this era of the Spirit.
