''UK slim pulp magazine, 16 issues published by Gerald G Swan, London 1948-1950. The two (undated) sf issues in the series, no 11 (1948) and 15 (1949), were resettings with UK illustrations of parts of Future Fantasy And Science Fiction (a variant title of Future Fiction), December 1942, and of SCIENCE FICTION QUARTERLY, Winter 1942. This was effectively a postwar renewal, with new numbering, of the earlier Swan Yankee Magazine series'' (Frank Parnell/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition):
