When he read Winthrop Sargeant’s article about fandom from a 1951 issue of Life, Andrew Porter found some things in it were awfully familiar:
The photo on the [article’s] first page is from The Man From Planet X which was on Turner Classic Movies last week. From the intro I earned that the actress in the photo is Sally Fields’s mother. Also, the weirdly-shaped ship appears in a Paul Lehr cover from the 1960s which I reprinted on the cover of Algol #39 (Summer 1980) as part of an interview with Lehr by Vincent Di Fate.
How many degrees of separation is that?
