Peter Phillips for Suspense

astounding_2_1949Stories from Suspense Magazine #1 Spring 1951

In “She Didn’t Bounce” by Peter Phillips, a cocksure suitor, enamored with a plump woman in his office plays a cheeky game of seduction in this surprisingly ribald entry in Suspense #1, that runs just three pages.

Phillips (1920–2012) was a UK writer and journalist, with nearly two dozen science fiction and detective stories published in US pulps and digests. His most famous, at least at the time of Suspense #1, was “Manna,” first published in the Feb. 1949 Astounding and “perennially reprinted in anthologies.”
