Journal Entry 1 by myranya from Zeist, Utrecht Netherlands on Tuesday, October 23, 2007
Various short stories of different writers and different genres. While this is called a 'pulp magazine' is printed in book form (at least this one is; Argosy been through quite a few changes in its history) and I've seen far worse both in form and content. As far as I'm concerned, it's a short story pocket. :-P
I liked 'to conquer Ceasar' although it is a bit sad. Also Red Kelly is a nice Old West story about a logger and how he meets and marries the logging company owner's granddaughter. And a very good excerpt from Something Wicked This Way Comes, by Ray Bradbury.

At the Midwinterfair, together with loads of other fantasy, SF, horror, historical fiction and fairy tales for adults and children. Most can be found in a large basket (or two) in the Roman inn, but I also plan to spread a few around in other places on the fair grounds.

Journal Entry 3 by Towels from Deventer, Overijssel Netherlands on Monday, December 10, 2007
I picked this fellow up at the Archeon on 9th December and whisked him back to Deventer. I'm starved for English books while living in the Netherlands and have a soft spot for both short stories and Ray Bradbury.

I found him in a basket by the Roman Inn.

I've read just a little so far and am mostly just enchanted by the wonderfully old adverts in the front and the very, very strange "Log Book" which is a proposed operetta of an agricultural show as sung by farmers and eel worms. Just about as bizarre as things can get.

He's in good hands for the time being and I plan to release this chap to the wild in London this Christmas to set him off on, hopefully, a long an interesting journey.

Thankyou for the release!

Left on a bench! When I looked back, it was already gone.

God speed, Argosy!
