''UK large digest magazine, 16 issues, monthly, April 1957 - July 1958, published by Dalrow Publications, Bolton, Lancashire; edited by Leslie Syddall. Short-lived, Phantom was at the time the only UK magazine devoted entirely to supernatural fiction. It concentrated on ghost stories, but did cover other traditional supernatural themes, especially werewolves and witchcraft. From no 4, through the influence of Forrest J. Ackerman and August W. Derleth who served as agents providing the bulk of the material for the magazine, it began to contain more reprint material, mostly from WEIRD TALES. The UK material was minor and mostly by local authors, though it included rare forays by R. Lionel Fanthorpe and John S. Glasby, contributing stories outside their Badger Books prison'' (Mike Ashley/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
