Indexer Notes

Refers to inside story "Forsaking All Others!" (older man/younger woman plot, and character names of Cora and Steve match this story).

Previous indexer linked the cover with a different interior story "Beauty Loves the Beast!" (about ugly man/attractive woman) due to the text block above the title logo, but this is not the story referenced by the cover art/text.
