''the leading UK sf magazine, publishing 220-odd issues over an intermittent career of over 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 #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 #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 #179, ending with #201. There have been further (irregular) issues since then, but for the greater part of the period from #22 to #200 the magazine maintained a monthly schedule with only occasional lapses'' (Encyclopedia of SF).
