Index to the fanzine Xenophile - part 2

Had the good luck recently to acquire a complete run of the fanzine Xenophile. Have been reading a few issues, shocked by the low prices and high dudgeon evinced by subscribers at price increases of pulps to as much as $3 for a late 1930s Black Mask issue. Didn't find it indexed, so this is my take on the index, which i plan to submit to FictionMags once it's done. Will post a few articles from it once I'm done indexing.

Suggestions for articles to post welcome, leave a comment.

If you find a mistake, leave a comment and I'll fix it.

Part 1 covers the first 22 issues. Part 2 covers the last 22 issues.
