Fender's Pick for

BOOKS O' TH' FORTNIGHT

 

CATHEDRAL OF HORROR

 

and

 

TWO-TIMERS

 

 Once again I cannot choose between the two new books of the fortnight. Arthur J. Burks was known as the fastest pulpwriter alive and Ray Cummings and Malcolm Jameson were at the top of their form when they wrote the two time-travel stories collected in TWO TIMERS. I despair.
