US Amateur Magazine, two issues 1947, edited by Gordon M Kull and George R Cowie from San Francisco. The Vortex is listed in some indexes as a Semiprozine because of the production quality of the first issue, although the content was by unknown amateurs and it was distributed free. It was attractively printed on glossy paper, in a square Digest format. All the money was spent on the first issue and so the second, which included name writers like David H Keller and Stanley Mullen, was mimeographed. This issue included E Everett Evans's sf debut "Perfection". [MJE/FHP/MA]
