Indexer Notes

Writer credit revised from Powell to ? by Craig Delich. The Who's Who doesn't indicate that Powell wrote this feature, nor does any other resource I've checked.

It is interesting that the Who's Who lists Powell are drawing this feature in 1966, not in 1957, but the art on this story is definitely by Powell.
