Transcript ■ NP cost a nlckle a copy — oh, I was anxious that people buy it; later that price rose to a dime, $1.75 for a year's 24 Issues. At most about 25 people subscribed to It. There were 16 Issues in all, and the first 13 of those came out on schedule: 1st and 15th of the first 6 1/2 months of 1949* My fellow contributors included my Lovecraft friends. Hank Kuttnerand Robert Blooh; a University of Chicago friend, Georg Mann (who did "The Salesman as a Culture Hero" and "The Future of the Lie," elsewhere a series of fine satires about a family of Central European geniuses named Wlschmeler), two or three poets, of course, and a couple of over-enthusiastic taboo-breakers who embarrassed me with their vulgarities. Whatever else New Purposes managed or failed to be. It did prove one thing: that I myself was bursting to write and be heard — have an audience. Why, I was even writing a novel In NP by semimonthly Installments, Casper ^ > Scatterday'8 Quest, a sort of a Voltaire naive i>young man encounters life" thing with Casper being Candida and one Joe Brimstone his Dr. Pangloss. A few years later I resurrected those stumbling, talky episodes, gave them a science-fantasy background, and they grew into The Green Millennium.
