Books read in 2011: No. 30 - Henry Horn's X-Ray Eye Glasses

by Dwight V. Swain

Started: June 18
Finished: June 18

Notes: As I have just finished a book about writing fictional characters by this old pulp author, I thought I'd search out one of his stories and see him in action, so to speak. I found this one online. This tale is a science fiction story originally published in a magazine back in 1942.

Mini review: A funny little story. Very obviously a product of the World War II era in terms of style, plot and theme. Not great, not awful.

I think I've actually read this at some point. the title sounds very familiar.

Charles, there was a series of short stories about the Henry Horn character during the early '40s, so you might have read any of them, I suppose.
