Illustrated Sunday Magazine

Country: US

One of the four Sunday Magazine Supplements published during the period 1902 to 1920 (roughly) the Illustrated Sunday Magazine appeared in The Boston Sunday Herald, The Buffalo Sunday Times, The Cleveland Leader, The Detroit Free Press, The Louisville Courier-Journal, The Milwaukee Sunday Sentinel, The Minneapolis Tribune, The New Orleans Daily Picayune (and later, Times Democrat), The Philadelphia Record, The Pittsburgh Gazette Times, The Providence Sunday Tribune, The Rochester Democrat, The Washington Post, and The Worcester Sunday Telegram.

Although the covers of the magazines were typically simply called The Sunday Magazine of the xxxx for each newspaper concerned, this syndicate can sometimes be identified because the masthead carries a small box including the word "Illustrated". In others, the magazine must be recognized instead by the distinctive typography of the masthead, in which (for example) the middle stroke of the S in Sunday is composed of two shaded bars interrupted by white space.

It published a considerable amount of original fiction and in 1915 it also ran reprints of "the best" 21 short stories from other American magazines of the preceding year, as selected by Edward J. O'Brien -- a succesful experiment that led to the founding of the long-running hardcover best-of-the-year anthology series edited by O'Brien.

Imagination [1950]

Country: US
Total Issues: 63

William Hamling has stated that he was the editor & publisher from the beginning. The first 2 issues were published while Hamling was still employed at Ziff-Davis so Ray Palmer acted as a "front" and those issues give Palmer's company as the publisher. They do not, however, list an editor, allowing readers to assume that it was Palmer.
