Ring Of Wonder

Art by Norman E. Masters


PHANTASMAGORIA will be (predominantly) an anthology of fantasy and science fiction originally published between 1964 & 1974 in a number of No-Eyed Monster Press publications. These publications, generally having no more than 50 copy print-runs, included 19 issues of THE NO-EYED MONSTER, 8 issues of THE PORNOGRAPHIC ONION and a couple dozen one-shot titles (one of which was entitled FRENCH KISSING THE GIRL WITH THE DOUBLE DIP OF STRAWBERRY ICE CREAM IN HER MOUTH).

All the follies of one's youth?!

However, I *do* think it would be a shame if some of the *best* material published amidst those thousands of pages were utterly lost to posterity.

Herewith are the pieces Yours Truly remembers with greatest fondness.
