UNIVERSE SCIENCE FICTION
   US DIGEST magazine, 10 numbered issues June 1953-Mar 1955; \#1-\#2 published by Bell Publications, Chicago, the rest by Palmer Publications, Evanston; \#1-\#2 ed George Bell (pseudonym of Raymond A. PALMER and BeaMahaffey), rest ed (officially) Palmer and Mahaffey.This was a companion magazine to Palmer's SCIENCE STORIES, and both have been seen as continuations of his earlier OTHER WORLDS, whose last issue in its 1st incarnation was dated July 1953. It was USF, however, that changed its title back to Other Worlds with \#11 (May 1955), which confusingly numbered itself 2 ways, continuing both USF's numeration (\#11) and Other Worlds's numeration (\#32). (For the rest of this deeply confusing story OTHER WORLDS.)Fewer than usual of the contributors were the Chicago hacks soregularly employed by Palmer, so the fiction was a bit better than his average - perhaps because of Mahaffey's influence. Authors included Chad OLIVER and Theodore STURGEON.
