The Passing Show

Total Issues: 1280

Regularly featured two or three stories per issue and sometimes a serial. Sometimes ran spoof fantasies, e.g. "Nasty Day Today, Sir" by Will Scott (27-Jun-1931) in which a professor builds a weather machine and makes it rain on Margate to spoil the holiday trade so he can buy up the town cheap, but also ran some serious sf e.g. "When Worlds Collide" Balmer & Wylie, 1932 (from Blue Book); "The Pirates of Venus" and "Lost on Venus" ERB, 1932/1933 (from Argosy); "The Secret People" John Beynon Harris, 1935. However, it would be fair to say that this society magazine of the 1920s had slipped down-market a bit by the 1930s.

Pearson's Magazine (US)

Total Issues: 314

US edition of the British magazine. Initially a straight like-for-like printing it later diverged quite considerably running original US material as well as reprinting from other UK magazines.

The magazine seems to have first appeared in March 1899 but, because it was really just a US printing of the UK edition it continued the same volume and issue numbering, which then was Volume 7, No. 39 - though it only said this on the spine. There's a sudden change in Jan 1903 when the magazine numbering becomes Vol. 9 No. 1. It had now converted to a volume numbering consistent with the first US issue.
