WORLDS OF FANTASY
   1) UK pocketbook-size magazine, 14 numbered, undated issues 1950-4, published by John Spencer, London; ed anon Sol Assael and Michael Nahum. WOF is almost identical to the other 3 Spencer juvenile-sf magazines,FUTURISTIC SCIENCE STORIES, TALES OF TOMORROW and WONDERS OF THE SPACEWAYS, all containing fiction of very low quality.
   2) US DIGEST-size magazine. 4 issues 1968-71, \#1 published by Galaxy Publishing Corp., \#2-\#4 by Universal Publishing; \#1-\#2 ed Lester DEL REY, \#3-\#4 ed Ejler JAKOBSSON. This attempt to produce a fantasy companion to GALAXY SCIENCEFICTION - it published a lot of SWORD-AND-SORCERY material - might well have succeeded had it had better distribution. The standard was good: WOF published The Tombs of Atuan (WOF 1970; exp 1971) by Ursula K. LE GUIN and early stories by Michael BISHOP and James TIPTREE Jr.
