Indexer Notes

Letters of comment from F.N.*; Billy Clapper; Richard Simcax; James Richard Owen; Joe Coglianese; Mike Sumner; and Rick Wood. (Interestingly, F.N. suggests "why shouldn't the people who spot blunders think up an explanation for them instead of merely mentioning them?" Three years later, Stan Lee originated the Marvel No-Prize, utilizing this very premise.)
