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).

Experimenter Publishing Co.: NY. 1928.
First edition.
Oversize pulp magazine.
February 1928 issue.

''US monthly large pulp-sized popular-science magazine, Slick paper; 220 issues from May 1913 to August 1931. It began as The Electrical Experimenter and changed title to Science and Invention in August 1920. Published 1913 - 1929 by Experimenter Publishing, under Hugo Gernsback until his bankruptcy in 1929, thereafter published by Radio-Science Publications. From March 1920 onwards there was not a single issue that did not contain either a speculative article or speculative fiction, often both, and often several. Science and Invention was a more commercially successful magazine than Amazing, with a formula not unlike that later adopted by Omni. But although it was from Science and Invention that Amazing Stories evolved and thereby the whole genre of magazine science fiction, there was not a single writer whom Gernsback published in the magazine who went on to establish themselves as a major force in the sf world, not even G Peyton Wertenbaker, who was Gernsback's most exciting pre-Amazing discovery'' (Mike Ashley & Peter Nicholls/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

Science Fiction was never better than very mediocre; although its covers were all by Frank R Paul, they were poor examples of his work. Most of the stories were already rejects from other magazines and appeared under a variety of pen names'' (Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

''US Pulp magazine. Five bi-monthly issues October 1952 to June 1953, published by Standard Magazines as a companion to Startling Stories and Thrilling Wonder Stories; edited by Samuel Mines. 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).

'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).

243 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).

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.

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)..
