Science Fiction Monthly [1974]

Country: UK
Total Issues: 28

Primarily a poster magazine, it reprinted paperback cover paintings on extra large pages and was issued unstapled, allowing the "prints" to be easily removed and mounted. The issues were filled out with stories and articles. Sales dropped steadily as the novelty wore off, and it was briefly replaced by S.F. Digest, a more conventional SF magazine.

Science Fiction Quarterly (UK) [1943]

Country: UK
Total Issues: 2

Gerald G. Swan published two magazines in 1943 entitled The Moon Conquerors and Into the Fourth Dimension. These were the titles of the lead stories but each was, in fact, a nearly complete reprint of an issue of the US Science Fiction Quarterly.

The covers were extremely crude imitations by unknown artists of the corresponding covers of the original magazines, printed in monochrome blue, presumably a war-time austerity measure.
