    The Scrap Book [v12 #1, July 1911] (Frank A. Munsey Co.; NY and London, 160pp, pulp)
    The plethora of bottom-of-page-filling mini articles and random quotations has vanished; the magazine (still on poor pulp paper and lacking any illustrations) is now confined to fiction, poetry, and a few articles of substantial size, and as a result is no longer a chore to index. But of course its run is almost over...

    The longer stories that have been holding down the final slot in each issue for some months now are called “complete novels” by SCRAP BOOK, but none are even novellas, and some (like this sixteen-pager probably do not even qualify as novelettes. Details supplied by Denny Lien.
