    Sorry/ hear of Alan’s passing; he almost certainly would have accepted my short tale “Mr. Nobody” for NIGHT CRY in 1987 had the ‘zine not folded when it did. As best I can recall, it didn’t quite have the right “fee” or such for TWILIGHT ZONE MAG itself. i do still have Alan’s letter on it, though. The 1980s were full of near-sales, etc., for me; another semi-professional anthology was to have taken early version “Far beyond the Sky” roughly the same time – but editor/publisher died abruptly, etc.

    Brief addenda; I meant to write “feel,” of course in my comments on Mr. Rodgers, not “fee.”
