Ah, yes, my first exposure to fanfic, circa 1977. Come to think of it, I still have it in my collection somewhere, too. And that particular story stuck with me through all the decades since. (As I recall, I was also rather fond of the story called something like "The Enchanted Pool", too... To the best of my recollection, it could have slotted into UF quite nicely.)
