I’d long heard of Horace L. Gold (and L. Sprague de Camp’s) “most terrifying story to ever appear in Unknown,” novella, None But Lucifer, but I hadn’t realized it was available to be read, not only in print but also online – for free, thanks to Galaxyezine.com
I share some infor about it at:
Rocketry expert Willy Ley acted as science editor for Galaxy magazine for about ten years. Galaxy was published by Horace Gold. It folded in 1980. There is a webzine, galaxyezine.com, from which I found these two videos, uploaded to YouTube. In them, E.L. Gold tells a couple of amusing Willy Ley stories.
The Thunder Child is launching a couple of new blogs for the new year, one on space exploration and one on marine exploration.
