Description

Excerpt from The Link, Vol. 6: May, 1948 Foster Davidoff (They Lived As One, page 3) served with the Frying Tigers in China during the war, was awarded the Breast Order Yun Hui by the Chinese Government, and in 1947 accepted a commission in the Regular Army. Captain Davidoff is a native of Trenton, N. J., is thirty years old and very strongly opinionated about the subject his article covers. He wrote extensively on military subjects during the war for most service magazines and many eastern newspapers. At present he is working on a war novel which he anticipates will be ready for publication by this time in 1949. Josh M.Drake, Jr. (Excitement, Adventure and Stuff Like That, page 6) was hit in 22 places by a Jap shell while serving with the 25th Division in the Philippines. He lost his left arm and two fingers from his right hand, but he considers himself lucky just to be alive. Although he was once told by an English teacher that he was wasting his time trying to write, he began doing just this while recuperating in Army hospitals. He and his wife saved the money earned from his writing for six months and then took a two weeks vacation at Colorado Springs. Some of this writing money is also being saved to send their daughter to college 14 or 15 years from now. C. J. Papara (The Marines Still Mop Up, page 9) comes from Racine, Wisconsin, is a graduate of the University 2 of Wisconsin and is presently on the editorial staff of the Rhinelander (Wise.) Daily News. Here is another contributor who is a veteran. Mr. Papara saw 42 months service with the Army, 25 of which were spent in the Solomon Islands. Peter Wallace (Ikey The Gun, page 15) has just entered the field of fiction writing. Most of his writing up to now has been in the trade journal field with air subjects as his specialty. For a while he prepared for the Army Air Forces histories of its various units. Mr. Wallace spent almost five years in the Army, most of it overseas in England, Africa, Italy, France and Germany. Carey Derby (A Garden Rare, page 21) thinks the manner in which we cultivate our mental gardens is always revealed in the outer world. Hence the inspiration for this story. Her yen for writing was born while preparing narrative reports on the secret investigations of the Postal Inspection Service of a mid-west city. The very first article which she wrote for publication was accepted pronto so now every spare moment is spent in this work. Lulu Bradley Cram (Astrology Is a Fascinating Hobby, page 24) is one of the best known scientific astrologers in the country. She has done broadcasting and teaching and numbers her clients from all over the United States and Canada with a few from foreign countries. For the most part her articles are light, humorous and written from the angle of character analysis (such as this one she has done especially for Link readers). Occasionally, however, she does write on profound subjects. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
