In this issue you get a bunch of reviews of movies about "invisible folk", the source/inspiration being H.G. Wells's novel The Invisible Man [1897]. Dale begins with one of his trademark observations: "Obvious problems with invisibility are overlooked. A truly invisible man would be blind because his retinas wouldn't stop any light for the optical nerves to process, but we can give Wells et al that one as part of suspension of disbelief."

His reviews are hilarious. A great issue.
