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.
