A man is quite lucky to have a wife who will sing his praise, let alone having one who will do so as well as you did. Congratulations Mrs. VdL.

I have the QSH. I downloaded it when Mr. Van der Luen graciously offered it up right here.

I'm glad I found Gerard via the comments at Roger L. Simon. If I had just wandered into American Digest at random and read the bio, I might have chosen the screen name "It Was My Loneliest Summer" as a tribute to his association with Penthouse...

The funny thing about my experience with Penthouse is that most of those times when I crossed paths with the odd issue (usually a badly tattered copy in a duty room or ship's berthing area) I did look for the essays and shorts. Well, most of the time, at least.

Quality comes through every time.

Thanks, Mrs.V.

What a nicely created tribute to a loved one, and how interesting that it came on the heels of the expository of the dreaded 1960's. Thank you.
