Dana Marie Andra: "I was writing for the RBCC as Mark Burbey, and doing occasional graphics and whatnot.  FRAZETTA, WILLIAMSON, WOOD, CRANDALL - AN ART FOLIO was an unofficial SFCA publication, financed by G.B. Love. It was a bootleg project inspired by THE MAGIC OF FRANK FRAZETTA and MORE MAGIC OF FRANK FRAZETTA. G.B. Love, Andy Warner, and I selected the artwork to include. (Jim Van Hise may have been involved, as well.) I designed and created the cover, and collated the printed copies. The address in the ad was where I lived with my parents. G.B. didn't want it to be associated with SFCA, for obvious reasons."
