Monstrous Humor

The following response was sent to one Ms. Hunter in reference to an unsolicited story sent to the Editor (Al Gingerich) of a science fiction magazine in 1978.

Original story was written by Glen M Bever and published in Isaac Azimov’s Science Fiction Magazine in 1978.


Dear Ms. Hunter; 

       I have some bad news for you in connection with your proposed screen play Son of Dracula Meets His Mummy It is not general knowledge, but after the birth of his twelfth daughter last year the Count had a certain piece of minor elective surgery done at a local clinic.

There ain’t gonna be any Son of Dracula!

Yours for ZPG

Al Gingerich
