Its policy, like that of Startling Stories, was to feature a complete novel in every issue. To some degree, as Startling's contents steadily matured under Mines's editorship, Space Stories came to fill the gap for readers who preferred the older style of fiction. Thus most of the material comprised rather macho adventures typical of the post-war period, though a few rose above the formulaic. The most notable novel was ''The Big Jump (''February 1953)by Leigh Brackett but also of interest is ''Planet of the Damned'' (December 1952; cut vt Slaves of the Klau 1958) by Jack Vance'' (Brian Stableford & Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

First edition.
Digest magazine.
Vol 1 no 5 (Summer 1967). Fifth issue. Companion magazine to MAGAZINE OF TERROR, with 18 issues published from Summer 1966 - March 1971.

'primarily a reprint magazine, Magazine of Horror was launched to cash in on the popularity of the Pan Book Of Horror Stories. Lowndes had a greater passion for the pulps, especially Weird Tales and Strange Tales, than for modern horror, and so Magazine of Horror became a haven for lesser-known reprints, its contents predominantly reflecting the pulp era of the 1920s and 1930s. It had several companion magazines. STARTLING MYSTERY STORIES (18 issues Summer 1966 - March 1971) printed non-fantastic fiction alongside some weirder material, concentrating on mystery fiction with a strange slant. It reprinted many of the Jules de Grandin stories by Seabury Quinn, and also published the first stories by Stephen King and F. Paul Wilson. The others were Weird Terror Tales (three issues Winter 1969/70 - Fall 1970) and Bizarre Fantasy Tales (two issues Fall 1970 - March 1971)'' (Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).

''primarily a reprint magazine, Magazine of Horror was launched to cash in on the popularity of the Pan Book Of Horror Stories. Lowndes had a greater passion for the pulps, especially Weird Tales and Strange Tales, than for modern horror, and so Magazine of Horror became a haven for lesser-known reprints, its contents predominantly reflecting the pulp era of the 1920s and 1930s. It had several companion magazines. STARTLING MYSTERY STORIES (18 issues Summer 1966 - March 1971) printed non-fantastic fiction alongside some weirder material, concentrating on mystery fiction with a strange slant. It reprinted many of the Jules de Grandin stories by Seabury Quinn, and also published the first stories by Stephen King and F. Paul Wilson. The others were Weird Terror Tales (three issues Winter 1969/70 - Fall 1970) and Bizarre Fantasy Tales (two issues Fall 1970 - March 1971)'' (Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).

First and only issue of UK reprint edition. A very unusual item - though there was an earlier short-lived US pulp magazine titled STIRRING DETECTIVE AND WESTERN STORIES, there was never any US pulp magazine just called STIRRING DETECTIVE STORIES: in fact this single UK reprint issue reprints stories from the US pulp DETECTIVE TALES. Very uncommon. Note: the magazine itself gives no date or publisher details.

230 Stockbridge, Grant (SPIDER)The Spider: Master Of The Death Madness. 34668
Dimedia Inc.: NY/Pulp Press. 1980.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback original.
Facsimile reprint of the lead novel MASTER OF THE DEATH MADNESS by Norvell W. Page (writing under the House Name of ''Grant Stockridge'') from the August 1935 issue of The Spider pulp magazine, plus the short story (in the same issue) ''Murder Deadline'' by Wyatt Blassingame. Note: two other stories in that particular issue are not reprinted.

US Pulp magazine, 118 issues October 1933 to December 1943; monthly until February 1943, bimonthly thereafter. Published by Popular Publications; edited initially by Rogers Terrill until mid-1936 and then by a succession of editors until W Ryerson Johnson closed down the final issue. The Spider, one of the hero/villain pulps, began as a straightforward imitation of the highly successful The Shadow, telling of a mysterious caped avenger. The first two novels were by R T M Scott; the remainder, credited to the House Name Grant Stockbridge, were mainly by Norvell W Page with others by Emile C Tepperman, Wayne Rogers and Prentice Winchell. Under Page's guidance, the Spider became a more ruthless character who stamped a spider sign on the foreheads of the villains he killed, and the menaces he fought became more fantastic, including a metal-eating virus and Neanderthal hordes (the two novels concerned were reprinted under their original titles as The City Destroyer [January 1935; 1975] and Hordes of the Red Butcher [June 1935; 1975]). The Spider also contained short stories, including the non-sf Doc Turner series by Arthur Leo Zagat. The character later featured in a cinema serial, The Spider's Web (1938; 15 episodes, Columbia, starring Robert E Kent). Since 1969 further novels have been reprinted in book form (see Norvell W Page for details). A final Spider manuscript by Donald Cormack, left unpublished when the magazine folded, was reworked with new characters as Blue Steel (1979) as by Spider Page (SF Encyclopedia, 3rd Edition).

First edition (& 1st printing).
Digest magazine.
Issue 11 (but actually no 4). Six issues were published of this reprint magazine between 1969-1970. The first issue, dated Spring 1969, is numbered no 8 and the next five issues numbered no 9 - no 13 (final issue, Fall 1970). The odd numbering is because the first issue ''was mailed to subscribers of SCIENCE FICTION CLASSICS'' and followed the seventh issue of that magazine, but was clearly not meant as a substitute for that title. The contents were totally different, and in fact an eighth issue of SCIENCE FICTION CLASSICS followed soon after''. See Ashley/Tymn: Science Fiction, Fantasy, And Weird Fiction Magazines pp. 621.

Popular Publications: NY. 1951 (April).
First edition.
Pulp Magazine.
April 1951 issue. 16 issues published in total March 1940 to May 1943, edited first by Frederik Pohl and then Ejler Jakobssen, who remained the editor when the magazine was revived some years later for a further fifteen issues, continuing the old volume numeration, January 1949 - August 1951.

''US Pulp magazine which ran in two series for a total of 31 issues. Both series were run by Popular Publications, New York, the first under their imprint Fictioneers, Inc, which allowed them to pay cheaper word rates: 16 issues March 1940 to May 1943, with three consecutive 1941 issues (March, May and August) titled Super Science Novels; edited by Frederik Pohl until August 1941, then Ejler Jakobsson. The magazine was revived by Popular Publications, continuing the old volume numeration, for 15 more issues January 1949 to August 1951, edited again by Ejler Jakobsson, with Damon Knight assistant on some issues. Super Science Stories began as a companion to Astonishing Stories, featuring standard pulp adventure sf, with slightly longer stories. It was an important market for the Futurian group, Pohl buying a good deal of material from himself (including many of his early collaborations with C M Kornbluth) and early stories by Isaac Asimov, Richard Wilson and Donald Wollheim. Super Science Stories never really established itself as a major market. Yet its material was of good quality, especially towards the end when under Damon Knight's influence it started to mature rather rapidly, though not rapidly enough compared to other markets. Popular Publications was having financial problems as the pulp market started to crumble and Super Science Stories was an early casualty'' (Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition)..

''TALES OF WONDER, though preceded in 1934 by the sf boys' paper, Scoops, was the first adult UK sf magazine. It used both original UK and reprinted US material (96 stories were published in total, of which 43 were new, and 53 reprints - with only eight of those new stories appearing in the last eight issues), and prospered until wartime paper restrictions and the drafting of the editor caused its demise'' [Philip Harbottle & Peter Nicholls & Mike Ashley/The Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Stapled pictorial wrappers.
October 1951 issue (no. 17) - the final issue published. Octavo, single issue, pictorial wrappers, side stapled. 23 issues of this Australian sf magazine were published between March 1950 and June 1952. This issue contains the title story plus two short stories by G. C. Bleeck and Alan Yates. See Tymn and Ashley (eds), Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Weird Fiction Magazines, pp. 672-74.

''Australian magazine, pulp magazine format for the first five issues, bedsheet format issues 6 - 12, and digest sized for issues 13 - 23, numbered, undated, mostly monthly March 1950 - June 1952, published by Associated General Publications, Sydney, company name changed to Transport Publications from no. 13; mostly edited (uncredited) by Alister Innes. THRILLS INCORPORATED was intended for children. Although US reprints as such were not used, plagiarism did occur without the publishers' knowledge. These (with new titles, but originally by Ray Bradbury, Charles L. Harness, Clifford D. Simak, William Tenn and others) were the only good stories printed, although Alan G. Yates contributed some Australian stories, as did G.C. Bleeck -- some under the name of Belli Luigi -- and Norma Hemming. Some stories were reprinted in the UK AMAZING SCIENCE STORIES'' (Frank H. Parnell & Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF).
