Behind a rather misleadingly tame sounding title, lurks one of the better, and more original satanic stories from ACG's precode 50's terror output. Illustrated by Robert McCarty, "The Fantastic Fan" would certainly be worthy of inclusion in DEVIL TALES VOLUME 2-- if such a volume were ever to exist (*crosses / inverts fingers!) Thanks again to William Zepf for pointing out this tale to me, and for donating the scans as well! FYI: THOIA is always open to submissions, if you've got a good story in mind (preferably one that hasn't already been posted) and want to share your scans here with everyone, just drop me a line.
From the October-November 1954 issue of Out of the Night #17.
