Arkham House book which I bought way back int 1970's directly from Arkham House. I have read the book several times. Frank B. Long is much maligned by many people as being a terrible writer but I disagree. His stories do have a certain charm and character to them though he will never be considered a great writer. I still think he is not bad and of interest because he was part of the "Lovecraft Circle".

"The Spiral Intelligence":

Cute, somewhat, hm, innocent science fiction story from the 1950s. Stronger in the beginning than at the end. All in all charming.

"The Man From Time":

Cute little time traveller story with a little love story blended into it. Reflective. I had a good feeling afterwards.
