Opuntia 251

16 pages, Dale Speirs, Box 6830, Calgary, Alberta, T2P 2E7, CANADA. Available for $3 cash for a one-time sample copy, trade for your zine, or letter of comment. 
Coolest Opuntia cover I've ever seen. That Cthulu stamp (artistamp?) is badass (and there's another one on page 2). These accompany a thorough review of a Cthulu Mythos anthology, Cthulu's Reign [2010, edited by Darrell Schweitzer].
Then some history of oats (Dale has a B.Sc in Horticulture) with a funny anecdote about Samuel Johnson's dictionary, in which he "...pokes fun at the Scots by defining oats as a grain that in most parts of the world is used as livestock feed but in Scotland is used to sustain humans."  Then some book reviews (The Isotope Man by Charles Eric Maine [1957] and Skyship by John Brosnan [1981]. Mailin Comments for FAPA #299, another book review, and some Sherlockiana.
