Indexer Notes

The story title is taken from the cover blurb. Art is signed with a colophon that can be interpreted as either "RA" or "AR" or "AA". If this is, indeed, Ruth Atkinson, she is being assisted by a more experienced artist/inker. Other possibilities include Al Avison or Aldo Rubano, but the art doesn't support those as well.
