We’ve finally come to the last story in the February 1930 issue of Astounding Stories of Super-Science: “The Thief of Time” by Captain S.P. Meek, aka Sterner St. Paul Meek. Yes, we’ve already had a story by him in this issue, “Into Space”, under another pseudonym.
This story, like the other one, relies on a science fictional device. But this one is a bit less dark, and a bit more realistic, within the fantastic framework. I’m a card-carrying member of the New Space Princess Movement, of course; but I like this sort of “urban science fiction” pulp approach, too.
(Assuming of course that you take “urban fantasy” to mean “fantasy in a realistic contemporary urban environment” and not “fantasy Gothic romance, with werewolves instead of Mr. Rochester, and sex partners instead of dance partners”. As a Spacer-American Princess, I don’t believe in putting up with the latter.)
