''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).
