The Stars are Too High: Original Owners

I've recently started reading Agnew Hunter Bahnson Jr.'s "The Stars are Too High".  Given the history of physics research I've done regarding Bahnson, I can't believe I haven't read it before, but I'm reading it now.  My copy arrived a few days back, and even though I'm only about a fifth of the way through the book, it's been very intriguing!

First off, I seem to have come into possession of a copy that was owned by two different sci-fi fanzine editors, one of whom became a published sci-fi author.  The name Tim Eklund by itself wouldn't have meant much, but when coupled with the name on the opposite side of the book's opening, Hank Lutrell, it began to come into focus.  Hank turns up immediately as the editor of a fanzine.  In the context of fanzines, I quickly found a link that indicated that Tim Eklund was more formally known as Gordon Eklund.  I haven't been able to confirm this is the case yet, but in any event, I learned something new as soon as I opened the book!
