Reading Room: SPEED CARTER: SPACEMAN "Half-Horrors of Hyades"

A story that gives new meaning to "split personality"...
...but in a somewhat odd way, from Speed Carter: SpaceMan #2 (1953).
This tale takes several cliches, including hero/heroine tied to a buzz-saw and the idea that, since different sides of the brain control different aspects of memory and personality, physically dividing it would result in different personas and mixes them together.
It's an interesting mix, but doesn't quite work.
Written (as are all the Speed Carter stories) by Hank Chapman and illustrated by Joe Maneely.
