- Canadian sf magazine, in DIGEST format for 4 issues, then BEDSHEET-size. 21 issues Nov 1940-Sep 1943; published to \#17 (May 1942), by the Adam Publishing Co., then by the Norman Book Co.; ed Melvin R. Colby (uncredited). The schedule was monthly for 17 issues, then irregular, the last issue appearing 9 months after \#20. Most of the stories, especially early on, were weird fiction, but a fair amount of sf was added to the mix. It published original material by Thomas P. KELLEY, Robert A.W. LOWNDES, Donald A. WOLLHEIM and others, as well as reprinting from USpulps including WEIRD TALES, COSMIC STORIES and STIRRING SCIENCE STORIES.Earlier a US pulp with the same title, a companion to MARVELSCIENCE STORIES, had been published by Manvis Publications, 5 issues 1938-40, ed Robert O. Erisman (uncredited), but printed no sf (though it had 1 sf cover), being a sex-and-sadism horror magazine.PN/BS
