AHMM Mar/Apr 2017

There’s a small notice in the current issue of AHMM. It serves as both a page filler and a call to action, and it’s worth repeating:

Note to Our Readers:
If you have difficulty finding Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine at your preferred retailer, we want to help. First, let the store manager know that you want the store to carry this magazine. Then send us a letter or postcard mentioning AHMM and giving us the full name and address of the store. Write to us at:
Dell Magazines, Dept. NS
6 Prowitt Street
Norwalk, CT 06855-1220

Use the above address for AHMM, Analog, Asimov’s and EQMM.

It works. I did it for Fate, which I couldn’t find at any retailer in Portland. Now Rich’s on 9th and Alder downtown carries it. What a kick to see the new issue on their racks.

For convenience, here’s a few more addresses:
Fantasy & Science Fiction
PO Box 3447
Hoboken, NJ 07030

Fate magazine 800-728-2730
PO Box 460
Lakeville, MN 55044

Nostalgia Digest, Fall 2014

Nostalgia Digest, Autumn 2014

“The Newsletter became the Digest in the fall of 1983. During those first nine years, the publication went through a lot of changes, going from the six-page format to become a monthly and then a bi-monthly publication in the format that we utilize to this day—that is, 5.5” x 8.5” with a cover. I think the early issues in that format were 16 pages and later grew to 32 pages by the 1980s. In 2003, the Digest became a 64-page quarterly publication and remains one to this day.”

Madison at Kedzie

“Madison Street and Kedzie Avenue are located in the very center of the West Side of Chicago. In fact, if a map of Chicago were a target on an archery range, the “bull’s-eye” would be at the crossroads of Madison and Kedzie, so close are the four corners to the center of the city.”
“Memories of Madison and Kedzie” by Peter Blyth Crombie
