The Eye of Argon, by Jim Theis

Just for the Helluvit, this is reputed to be the absolute worst story in the history of the genre. I'm not so sure of that, but it certainly is worse than any of the crappola golden-age stuff that I have in my collection.

I have a mimeographed copy somewhere and I reviewed it for a fanzine dedicated to sf turkeys I once published. I'll see if I can dig out the review.

I've never heard of this one.

Love that site. :D

The fanzine mostly reviewed books by Lionel Fanthorpe and the like. Old Badger books and stuff. Michael Kring. Terence Haile. It was partly responsible for starting the whole Thog thing in Ansible.
