Today in Library of Congress Subject Heading subdivisions applied to zines held in the Barnard Zine Library…
In cataloging a zine made by Hannah Mermelstein, I added the New-to-Us LCSH Israel-Arab War,1948-1949 and subdivided it Destruction and pillage. When I added Destruction and pillage alphabetically to my spreadsheet, it fell under Description and travel, which I think is appropriate.

Gaston Leroux, “The Edgar Allen Poe of France,” the author of Phantom of the Opera, is featured in this August 1929 issue of Weird Tales. It also included stories by Robert E. Howard (a King Kull story) and August Derleth. The cover is by Hugh Rankin. Leroux was a French journalist and mystery writer. The October, 1929 issue of Weird Tales also featured a Leroux translation, The Woman with the Velvet Collar.

I love these. We might be digitizing some old sci fi magazines at work soon. I hope so!
