A.MERRITT'S FANTASY MAGAZINE


A.MERRITT'S FANTASY MAGAZINE
   US PULP MAGAZINE. 5 issues, Dec 1949-Oct 1950, published by Popular Publications; no ed listed - it may have been Mary GNAEDINGER. AMFM was a companion magazine to FAMOUS FANTASTIC MYSTERIES and FANTASTIC NOVELS, and was begun in response to the considerable enthusiasm engendered by the reprinting of A.MERRITT's fiction in those magazines and elsewhere. Until the appearance in 1954 of VARGO STATTEN SCIENCE FICTION MAGAZINE, and then in 1977 of ISAAC ASIMOV'S SCIENCE FICTION MAGAZINE, AMFM was the only sf magazine which attempted to build its appeal on the popularity of a single author - even though Merritt himself had died in 1943 and much of his fiction was available elsewhere. In any event, the magazine failed to establish itself. AMFM also published reprints of stories by other authors. There was a Canadian reprint edition.
