Post-"Mandy" Sci-Fi Hoard

This week's antique market find: I fell in love with this small collection (or Mystery Hoard™) of 1970s sci-fi and fantasy digests, about 20 in all. Kara and I have been in a kind of "Mandy" mood all week after seeing the movie and these covers definitely have that acid-drenched prog/metal feel. I used to read Analog magazine every month as an 80s teen nerd but totally missed out on this 70s stuff. Great writers in here, as well as art by Kelly Freas and many others, including an underground comics ad from Last Gasp publishing illustrated by Canadian "Giant of the North" Hall-of-Famer Rand Holmes!
