WORLDS OF TOMORROW
   US DIGEST-size magazine. 26 issues in all, originally published by Barmaray Co. (Apr 1963) and then by Galaxy Publishing Co. as a bimonthly companion to GALAXY SCIENCE FICTION and IF, Apr 1963-May 1967, 23 issues, ed Frederik POHL. The bimonthly schedule slipped when Aug 1964 was followed by Nov 1964, and it went quarterly May 1966-May 1967. WOT was briefly revived by the Universal Publishing and Distributing Co. after they bought the Galaxy group, with 3 disappointing issues published 1970-71 ed Ejler JAKOBSSON. Notable stories included Philip K. DICK's "AllWe Marsmen" (Aug-Dec 1963; exp vt Martian Time-Slip 1964), Samuel R. DELANY's "The Star Pit" (Feb 1967), Larry NIVEN's first novel World of Ptavvs (Mar 1965; exp 1966) and the early stories in Philip Jose FARMER's Riverworld series, including "Day of the Great Shout" (Jan 1965), which was incorporated into the HUGO-winning TO YOUR SCATTERED BODIES GO (fixup 1971). A much-discussed article on CRYONICS by R.C.W. Ettinger (June 1963)ultimately led to the magazine publishing a symposium on the subject (Aug 1966). WOT was absorbed into its senior partner Worlds of If ScienceFiction after May 1967.The UK edition, published by Gold Star, ran for 4 issues Spring-Winter 1967.
