We strive for a range of styles: gothic, contemporary, surreal, and experimental horror; high and low, light and dark, as well as slipstream fantasy; and soft or hard science fiction. A blend of any of the genres is most welcome."

Fantastic [1952]

Total Issues: 208

Begun in 1952 by editor Howard Browne and publishers Ziff Davis (Z-D) as an attempt at a sophisticated and handsome digest-sized magazine, Fantastic was initially a success, and became even more so by its third issue, which featured a story attributed to the enormously popular crime fiction writer Mickey Spillane (although it was actually written by Browne.

Subsequent issues of Fantastic sold well enough for the pulp Fantastic Adventures to be merged with it in 1953; Amazing had already been reshaped to resemble Fantastic.
