SCIENCE FICTION CLASSICS


SCIENCE FICTION CLASSICS
   One of the many reprint DIGEST-size magazines published by Sol Cohen's Ultimate Publishing Co., 30 issues published, ed Herb Lehrman as Ralph Adris \#1-\#5, then ed Cohen. It began Feb 1967, published \#1-\#6 in 1967-8 as Science Fiction Classics and \#7-\#8 in 1969 as Science Fiction (Adventure) Classics. It resumed publication in Winter 1970 under thelatter title with \#12 and published 22 more issues before merging with Thrilling Science Fiction (The MOST THRILLING SCIENCE FICTION EVER TOLD)in early 1975. SFC was numbered consecutively up to \#19, and thereafter merely dated. The schedule was irregular. The hiatus in numbering (\#9-\#11 missing) is connected with the fact that 2 other magazines took up their numbering from SFC in 1969: SPACE ADVENTURES (CLASSICS) published 6 issues numbered \#9-\#14, and STRANGE FANTASY published 6 issues numbered \#8-\#13; they folded in 1971 and 1970 respectively.In its early issues SFC used a great deal of material from the 1930s AMZ, reprinting stories by John W. CAMPBELL Jr, Hugo GERNSBACK, Edmond HAMILTON et al., but from \#13 itreprinted mainly poor stories from the period of Raymond A. PALMER's editorship. Variant titles were Science Fiction Adventures Classics (July 1973-July 1974) and Science Fiction Adventures (Jan-May 1973, Sep and Nov1974).
