Collision (coll 2019) presents a gamut of her short work, which is also characterized by a forthright use of the materials of Fantastika to anatomize contemporary life: which she clearly sees as being at profound risk. / ...

Mysterious Wu Fang, The

US Pulp magazine, seven issues September 1935 to March 1936, monthly, published by Popular Publications; edited by Edythe Seims working for Rogers Terrill.
