"Fantastic Stories of Imagination", February 1965 (ed Cele G Lalli) (magazine): Annotated table of contents

Cover by Heidi Coquette of Fantastic Stories of Imagination magazine, February 1965 issue, illustrating the story A Fortnight of Miracles by Randall Garrett
Another one whose download link I seem to have lost.

While I haven't read any of the stories yet, descriptions suggest these are mostly fantasy.

Table of contents.

  1. [novelet] Randall Garrett's "A Fortnight of Miracles": "It is hard on a man to have not one ... nor two ... but three vexish spells upon him. Such a man has need of a worthy mage & a goodly goblin ... & an author like this one who can get him out of black magic trouble without leaving any loose ends about."
  2. [ss] Roger Zelazny's "Passage to Dilfar": "A day & a night had Dilvish ridden to warn of the coming slaughter, for all hope now rested with Dilfar--& with the horse that carried him there."
  3. [ss] Ron Goulart's "Winterness": "When dealing with the spirit world, you can do things three ways: rarely, well-done, or medium. When a vanished judge & a buxom columnist are involved, it is perhaps better to settle for the medium."
  4. [ss] Thomas M Disch's "The Vamp": "Once you marry a Transylvanian count, things are never what they used to be. Not even a good steak."
  5. [serial - 2/2] John Brunner's "The Repairman of Cyclops".
