Vortex Science Fiction

Tagged: Publication

US Digest-size magazine, two issues, May and October 1953, published by Specific Fiction Corp, New York; edited by Chester Whitehorn. Vortex was designed to showcase a large number of very short stories in each issue, achieving this goal in #2, but the idea did not prove popular. However, not all of the nine new writers who made their debut in the second issue were doomed to remain unknown: Marion Zimmer Bradley had two minor stories there. A later magazine (1954) with the same publisher and editor was Science Fiction Digest.

Vortex SF should not be confused with Vortex or The Vortex – one name, three utterly different magazines. [FHP/PN]
