Bradbury signed fanzine

This copy signed by Ackerman, too.
Elsewhere on the blog, the text is typed out of this from another copy.

The seller states:

THE CASE OF THE BAROQUE BABY-KILLER: A Teenage Chum (Forry Ackerman) Rattles Some Skeletons in the Closet of Ray Bradbury
by (Ray Bradbury). Forrest J. Ackerman
[no place]. [no publisher noted]. [undated].
5-page fanzine article offprint.
First page unnumbered, then pages numbered 14, 15, 16, 17, evidently from the original, unidentified publication.
Faint crease at staple, pages age-toned, as expected, else fine: three sheets, stapled at upper left corner.
Ackerman has used a red pen to cross out "Raymond" in the first paragraph, asterisked it and in a footnote writes "It's plain Ray--FJA."
Ray Bradbury has recently SIGNED the front page, at top
Fascinating fanzine bio of Bradbury by pal Ackerman, chronicling Bradbury's youth, his hopes and fears, his working methods and career, up to 1949. Laced with the expected effusive, pun-laden Forryisms but also with some unusual insights into his friend.
