Marvel Science Stories November 1938., MARVEL SCIENCE STORIES,  (ed. Robert O. Erisman)
151 MARVEL SCIENCE STORIES, (ed. Robert O. Erisman)Marvel Science Stories November 1938. 40927
Postal Publications; Chicago. 1938 (November).
First edition.
Pulp Magazine.
November 1938 issue. First issue of 15 issues published in total, nine issues August 1938 - April 1941, and revived for a further six issues November 1950 to May 1952. The title began as MARVEL SCIENCE STORIES, then at various times over the fifteen issues changed to MARVEL TALES, MARVEL STORIES (then back to Marvel Science Stories) and finally MARVEL SCIENCE FICTION.

''an sf pulp magazine from a chain which included such fringe-sf titles as Uncanny Tales, Marvel was the first of the many new sf magazines of the late 1930s and early 1940s. It was notorious for the mildly erotic approach of its early issues, to which Henry Kuttner contributed several stories, including ''The Time Trap'' (November 1938). The February 1939 issue featured Jack Williamson's ''After World's End'' (1961). After five issues the title changed in December 1939 to Marvel Tales, and for two issues the magazine leaned more heavily towards titillating sex and sadism, like ''Lust Rides the Roller Coaster'' (December 1939) by Ray King and ''World without Sex'' (May 1940) by Robert Wentworth (Edmond Hamilton). The title changed again in November 1940 to Marvel Stories, and the magazine returned to straightforward sf. Although initially successful enough to generate a companion, Dynamic Science Stories, Marvel, which began as a quarterly, became less and less frequent through 1939-1940, ceasing with the April 1941 issue. It was revived in pulp format in November 1950 under its original title, switched to digest size after two issues, appeared three times in that format, and reverted to pulp size for its final issue; it was Marvel Science Fiction for the last three issues. Although the second series contained work by L Sprague de Camp, Murray Leinster and Jack Vance the stories were minor pieces. Overall, Marvel's existence is more as evidence of trends than of quality'' (Malcolm J. Edwards & Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

159 NEW WORLDS, (ed. John Carnell)New Worlds no 1 (vol 1 no 1 - very first issue + variant cover) 40366
Pendulum Publications: London. 1946.
First edition (variant cover).
Pulp Magazine.
First issue published (with later variant spaceship front cover). Subtitled: A Fiction Magazine Of The Future. Three large-pulp-size magazine issues appeared 1946-1947 from Pendulum Publications, before switching to a smaller (large digest) format and a new publisher Nova Publications (Pendulum having gone bust) from the fourth issue onwards (which appeared after a two year gap in April, 1949). Note: this first issue didn't sell well and was quickly re-issued with a different cover (in fact the same cover as used for the second issue, a spaceship with blue background): this copy for sale has the reissued variant cover. This is a sharp copy.

''long the leading UK sf magazine (and an original-anthology series for two sections of its chequered career), publishing 222 issues during a span of 51 years from July, 1946 - August, 1997), but including a 12-year hiatus. New Worlds, though it had volume numbers up to no 177, has always been numbered consecutively (in its magazine incarnations); the first five were undated. New Worlds was a development from a pre-World War Two Fanzine [1936-1939] called first Novae Terrae and then New Worlds, the last four issues of which were edited by science-fiction fan John Carnell. The writer W J Passingham talked the firm The World Says into publishing New Worlds professionally in 1939, just weeks before the Second World War began; but with the subsequent financial collapse of the company, plans were dropped. As a consequence it was not until after the War that New Worlds appeared, this time thanks to Stephen Frances, who introduced Carnell to Pendulum Publications. Three small-pulp-size issues were published irregularly by Pendulum during 1946 and 1947 under Carnell's editorship. Of these issues, the first was issued twice with different covers; no 1 with the original cover had not sold well, but it did better the second time round (the second version used the same cover as no 2). Pendulum Publications then went bust, and a group of UK sf fans and professionals (including Carnell himself, Frank Edward Arnold, Walter Gillings, Eric C Williams and John Wyndham), who used to meet at the White Horse pub in London, formed their own company, Nova Publications, in order to revive this somewhat tentative magazine in 1949 in large-digest format'' (Science Fiction Encyclopedia, Third Edition).

161 OPERATOR #5, (pulp reprint)Operator #5: Cavern Of The Damned. 34654
Dimedia Inc.: NY/Pulp Press. 1980.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback original.
108 pages. Facsimile reprint of the lead novel in the December 1934 issue of Operator #5 pulp magazine, ''Scourge Of The Invisible Death'' by Frederick C. Davis (writing under the House Name ''Curtis Steele''). Thirteen of the Operator #5 pulp novels were reprinted 1966-1980 by different publishers. This is the first of three issued by Dimedia Inc. in 1980.

''US pulp magazine, 48 issues, April 1934 to November/December 1939, published by Popular Publications; edited by Rogers Terrill, originally monthly and then alternated between bimonthly and monthly. This was one of the livelier and more successful hero/villain pulps, thematically more ambitious than most, as it changed after the first twenty issues into a set of Future War narratives garishly prefiguring World War Two. Operator #5 throughout was secret agent Jimmy Christopher, whose assignment - increasingly hard to fulfil as later issues of the series became more apocalyptic - was to save America from destruction by various menaces (often superscientific) and from the Invasions of unfriendly powers (both Central European and Asiatic). The lead novellas were published under the House Name Curtis Steele, which concealed the highly prolific pulp writer Frederick C Davis (April 1934-November 1935), whose Operator is basically a spy; then Emile Tepperman (December 1935-March 1938); and lastly Wayne Rogers (July 1938-November 1939). Other features included a series of spy stories by Arthur Leo Zagat. Thirteen of the early lead novels, all the work of Davis, and each of them comprising a complete story, were reprinted in book form:

Dancing Tuatara #15. Edited and with an introduction by series editor John Pelan. This is the first volume of stories by Wayne Rogers taken from Dime Mystery Magazine, Terror Tales and Thrilling Mystery by editor John Pelan, whose introduction puts the horror fiction of Rogers into its historical perspective.

''the masters of the weird menace yarn . . . Hugh B. Cave, Arthur J. Burks, John H. Knox, Wyatt Blassingame, Arthur Leo Zagat, and of course, Archibald Bittner . . . Wait, Archibald Bittner??? Yes, after spending the 1920s working various stints as an editor on general fiction magazines, Bittner re-invented himself in 1933 as Wayne Rogers and became one of the most dependable authors of the weird menace tale. Wayne Rogers wasn’t the earliest of the weird menace authors, but he was in the second issue of the genre with Disappearing Death in the November, 1933 issue of Dime Mystery Magazine, thus precedes such luminaries as Arthur J. Burks, Wyatt Blassingame, and Arthur Leo Zagat. And unlike many of his colleagues, he was still in top form as the genre was fading away at the dawn of the 1940s, with two of his strongest pieces Dracula’s Bride and March of the Homeless Corpses appearing in 1941'' (John Pelan).
