Fantastic Adventures (UK) [1946]

Total Issues: 2

#1 carried the front cover and the lead story from the US July 1946 issue, as well as the Frank Paul back cover from the same date. #2 had the cover and lead story from US June 1942 and it, too carried a Frank Paul back cover, but this one from the original US issue from December 1945. These two issues were only 32 pages in length and the remaining stories they contained were drawn from various earlier numbers from the 1942-45 period. SFFWF gives 1947 as the date for these, but IdxBSF dates them as July and September 1946, which are the dates used here.

Fantastic Novels Magazine (UK)

Total Issues: 2

British reprint edition of Fantastic Novels Magazine.

There were two undated issues in 1950 or thereabouts. One is unnumbered and is a full reprint of the November 1949 (US) issue, while the other is numbered as #1 and is a partial reprint of the May 1949 (US) issue. The first is thought to have appeared first but doesn't list a publisher, although it carries a Thorpe & Porter advert on the back, while the second gives the publisher as "Pembertons (of Manchester)".

Fantastic Science Fiction

Total Issues: 2

Dreadful juvenile sf. According to Walter Gibson all of the stories in this magazine were written either by himself or Ed Burkholder. Gibson could only identify one of his pseudonyms. One of the bylines is a known Burkholder pseudonym. J. Randolph Cox, who prepared a massive bibliography of Gibson's work, examined the remainder of the stories and is of the opinion that the two Bruce Crandall stories are probably by Gibson, and that the others are probably not.

Fantastic Universe

Total Issues: 69

Fantastic Universe ran for 69 issues, from June 1953 to March 1960, under two different publishers. It was part of the explosion of science fiction magazine publishing in the 1950s in the United States, and was moderately successful, outlasting almost all the other magazines of the period. The main editors were Leo Margulies and Hans Stefan Santesson; under Santesson's tenure the quality declined somewhat, and the magazine became known for printing much UFO-related material.
