New Worlds [1946]

Total Issues: 222

Original magazine sequence ended with #201, Mar-1971. A Canadian edition was distributed by Modern Distributors of Toronto, and a New Zealand one by Messrs. P.B. Fisher.

#202 to #211 were original anthologies, initially called NEW WORLDS QUARTERLY: there were US editions of #1 through 4, and the British New Worlds Quarterly #6 & 7 were printed in the US as New Worlds #5 & 6.

#212 to #216 were a short-lived revival of as a semi-prozine, and the issues after that were trade paperbacks from various publishers.
