Tales Of Wonder no 1., TALES OF WONDER,  (ed. Walter H. Gillings)
251 TALES OF WONDER, (ed. Walter H. Gillings)Tales Of Wonder no 1. 40369
World's Work: Kingswood, Surrey. 1937 (Winter).
First edition.
Pulp Magazine.
First issue (Winter 1937). Sixteen issues of TALES OF WONDER were published in total between 1937-1942, all edited by Walter Gillings. This issue includes ''Dimension Of Chance'' by Clark Ashton Smith, and ''Wanderers Of Time'' by John Wyndham (writing as ''John Beynon'').

''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).


Sellotape on spine, probably remaindered as it has the usual triangle missing at the corner, front cover re-attached, back cover reinforced, a G/VG copy.

The Spider: Builders Of The Black Empire., THE SPIDER (pulp reprint),
253 THE SPIDER (pulp reprint),The Spider: Builders Of The Black Empire. 34655
Dimedia Inc.: NY/Pulp Press. 1980.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Trade paperback original.
Facsimile reprint of the lead novel BUILDERS OF THE BLACK EMPIRE by Norvell W. Page (writing under the House Name of ''Grant Stockridge'') from the October 1934 issue of The Spider pulp magazine, plus the short story (in the same issue) ''Doc Turner's Death Rendezvous'' by Arthur Leo Zagat. 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).

Street & Smith: NY. 1940 (May).
First edition.
Pulp Magazine.
May 1940 issue. 39 issues of the fantasy pulp magazine were published in total between March 1939 and October 1943, edited by John W Campbell Jr.: the title changed to UNKNOWN WORLDS in October 1941 for the last 13 issues. Includes part 3 (of 3) of ''The Reign Of Wizardry'' by Jack Williamson.

''the fantasy companion to Astounding SF, Unknown was one of the most sophisticated of all pulp magazines, and its demise one of the most lamented. The first issue featured Eric Frank Russell's novel Sinister Barrier but a better indicator of the direction in which the magazine would develop was, in the same issue, H L Gold's story ''Trouble with Water'' (March 1939), a humorous fantasy exploiting the incongruity of confronting a twentieth-century American with a figure out of folklore. Campbell was developing in Unknown the type of intellectual fantasy which had appeared in the general slick magazines, like Collier's Weekly or Harper's Magazine, exemplified by the works of Lord Dunsany or Thorne Smith, but was hitherto unknown in the pulps. Unknown appeared during Campbell's peak years as editor. Its reputation may stand as high as it does partly because it died while still at its best'' (Malcolm J.

Frost., Wandrei,  Donald
274 Wandrei, DonaldFrost. 05417
Fedogan & Bremer: Minneapolis. 2000.
First edition (& 1st printing).
Hardcover.
Pulp crime collection: collects the title story and seven others, all originally published as part of a series (18 installments in all, eight by Wandrei) in ''Clues Detective Magazine'' in the early 1930's. Edited and with an introduction by D. H. Olson: illustrated by Les Edwards.

''Part Sherlock Holmes, part Shadow, Frost stood apart from the gritty trench-cloaked private eyes of the hard-boiled genre. At once looking back to the genteel, ratiocinative detectives of the 19th century and forward to the gimmick-laden adventurers of the James Bond generation, Frost was eccentric, enigmatic, and very, very, deadly.''

Magazine.
Worlds Of Fantasy & Horror Vol 1 no 1 (Weird Tales no 309). Stories by William F. Nolan, Ramsey Campbell, Jeff VanderMeer, Joyce Carol Oates, among others. The overlap in title/numbering, incidentally, is that when Terminus lost the Weird Tales licence to Hollywood in 1994 (there was an abortive attempt to develop a TV series), they continued with four issues of a similiar title, Worlds of Fantasy and Horror (which was Weird Tales in all but name), and these four issues are regarded as being a continuation of Weird Tales and therefore numbered accordingly (#309, 310, 311 & 312). When Terminus regained the licence in 1998, they simply resumed publication of Weird Tales proper starting with #313.

SF novel, a fix-up of stories first published in magazine form.

''at least three magazine series were collected in book form: The Bird of Time (August 1936-June 1953 Astounding, Thrilling Wonder; fixup 1959), a planetary romance set on Mars; LORDS OF ATLANTIS (May-November 1952 Future; coll of linked stories 1960), which features the rulers and scientists of Atlantis who, after the island sinks, live on as the gods of the Greek pantheon; and Outposts in Space (August 1931 Weird Tales as ''Moon Madness'' and later; coll of linked stories 1962), set on the moon and the Outer Planets. He was never a remarkable writer, nor did he ever devote himself full-time to fiction; but he was never dull'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).

First edition (& 1st printing).
Stapled pictorial wrappers.
Fifth issue. Octavo, single issue, pictorial wrappers. 18 issues published in total, quarterly, 1947 - 1952, edited by Donald A. Wollheim., In Tymn and Ashley (eds), Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Weird Fiction Magazines, pp. 127-132.

''US digest anthology, 18 volumes, quarterly, 1947 - 1952, published by Avon Publishing, New York; ed Donald A. Wollheim. AVON FANTASY READER was the first regular paperback reprint fantasy anthology series, though its digest format has often caused it to be classified as a magazine Wollheim selected primarily from WEIRD TALES, emphasizing the works of H.P. LOVECRAFT and CLARK ASHTON SMITH, and working in tandem with August W. Derleth at ARKHAM HOUSE to promote the best of Weird Tales's authors. Wollheim also reprinted stories from STRANGE TALES, Adventure and Blue Book, selecting fiction otherwise hard to find, but did not confine himself to the pulps, presenting a wide range of fiction from books, especially by UK authors like Algernon Blackwood, Lord Dunsany and William Hope Hodgson. Although AVON FANTASY READER published some sf, most of its content was supernatural fiction, plus some slick fantasy and heroic fantasy. The quality was high throughout'' (Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
