US DIGEST-size magazine. 10 issues, July 1953-Jan 1955, published by Galaxy Publishing Corp., ed H.L. GOLD.A companion magazine to GALAXY SCIENCE FICTION, BFF was a fantasy magazine conceived in the same spirit as UNKNOWN (to which Gold had contributed). It began promisingly, its first issue featuring such stories as Theodore STURGEON's ". . . And My Fear is Great" and Damon KNIGHT's "Babel II", but could maintain this standard only fitfully. \#2 contained Theodore R. COGSWELL's classic "The Wall Around the World". Notable later stories included "The Watchful Poker Chip" by Ray BRADBURY (1954) and "The Green Magician", a Harold Shea story by L. Sprague DE CAMP and Fletcher PRATT (1954). The first 8 issues were bimonthly and dated; the last 2, undated, were titled Beyond Fiction. BFF was drab in appearance with uninspired cover paintings. Beyond (anth 1963), no editor named, reprinted 9 stories. An abridged UK edition of the first 4 issues was published by Strato Publications, 1953-4.
