The intertwined histories of science fiction and smut fascinate me. A File 770 reference to Harlan Ellison and Lenny Bruce teaming up on stories for a 50s-60s men’s magazine led me to the Wikipedia article on Rogue, full of the names of the sf writers whose work I grew up on. A follow-up to it is that after the events described, Hugh Hefner raided the rival men’s magazines for editors, including Robert Shea. He then read a pseudonymous Realist article that inspired him to add Robert Anton Wilson to the team. The rest is secret history.
