  1. I have to say that I didn’t know Manly Wade Wellman or his works, nor did I know he lived in Chapel Hill, NC, when I was in college there in the mid ’60s. I wish I had. But then, I was just getting into fandom at the time. (I did meet Kay Kyser, the famous bandleader and radio personality of the ’30s and ’40s–and MWW’s contemporary. He was an alumnus of UNC, and retired to Chapel Hill about 1950.)

  2. Without wanting to diminish the winning work, is it just me that feels Manly Wade Wellman to be just slightly over compensating for something?
