15 June 1954 14 28 Dick Geis’s review in Psychotic 16: “A SAPS-zine, this, it features the cartooning genius of Plato Jones. The cover is especially apt both as a testimonial of his ability at cartooning and as a beautifully accurate depiction of a fannish state of mind: it shows a morose faned saying to himself, ‘Oh, gosh! Another issue to put out,’ while a twenty dollar bill is seen spiraling (get away, Moreen) its way upward from his pockets gone forever.
“The two outstanding features of the issue were an article by Joe Gibson describing the adventures possible to a fan who comes to New York and visits Sam Mines and the stf clubs in the area, and a very humorous re­port by Jim Harmon titled ‘The Midwestcon Caper.’”
