Two otherwise-unpublished pieces by the late legendary JEFFREY JONES - a full page swashbuckler, and a 1/4 page illo - are not credited, but they are signed by him. Done before he became a professional artist! Co editors Sam Ellotto Jr. and Eric M. Jones. The fanzine Seldon Seen (a tip of the hat to Asimov?s Harry Seldon of the Foundation series), began publishing in the Spring of 1967 at Long Island University. The name changed to Perihelion with the third issue. "We transformed the ugly duckling fanzine into a real semi-pro magazine," said Sam Bellotto Jr. (co-founder) in Gateways to Forever: The Story of the Science-Fiction Magazine, 1970-1980, authored by Mike Ashley.
