Space Science Fiction Magazine

Tagged: Publication

US Digest-size magazine. Two issues, Spring and August 1957, published by the Republic Features Syndicate; edited by Lyle Kenyon Engel, with much editorial work, uncredited, by Michael Avallone. Despite featuring such names as Arthur C Clarke, Raymond F Jones, Mack Reynolds and Jack Vance the magazine carried virtually nothing of any consequence. The best story may have been John Jakes's "The Devil Spins a Sun-Dream" (Spring 1957), which transplants a treasure hunt from the Old West to Mars with remarkably good results. [BS/PN/MA]
