Issue no 190 (May, 1969). Slick A4 format: this issue edited by Langdon Jones, with the help of Michael Moorcock and James Sallis. Includes the third part of Moorcock's A CURE FOR CANCER. 29 ''slick'' magazine issues (no 173 - no 201) were published 1967 - 1971 under the auspices of the Arts Council, edited by Moorcock (and colleagues). All are very uncommon.
''the leading UK sf magazine, publishing 220-odd issues over an intermittent career of more than fifty years, beginning with the first issue in July 1946. The first three issues were pulp-size, published irregularly by Pendulum in 1946 - 1947 under the editorship of sf fan, John Carnell. Nova Publications, a publishing group formed by UK sf fans who used to meet at the White Horse pub in London, revived this somewhat tentative 1946 - 1947 magazine in 1949 as a digest. Carnell remained in charge until no 141 (April 1964), after which the title was taken over by Roberts & Vinter, publishers of Compact Books, who issued it in a paperback edition, edited by Michael Moorcock. After no 172 (March 1967) it was published by Moorcock under the auspices of the Arts Council in a stapled 8in x 11in (approx A4) format, rising to bedsheet-size with no 179, ending with no 201. There have been further (irregular) issues since then, but for the greater part of the period from no 22 to no 200 the magazine maintained a monthly schedule with only occasional lapses'' (Encyclopedia of SF).
