Argosy

A semi-pro version of a general adventure pulp, with a good helping of SF. The origin of the numbering is not known to us, but does not derive from the long running pulp of the same title.

The Argosy (UK):


          The Argosy — UK; Jun. 1926-Feb. 1974 (573 issues); Cassell, London, then Amalgamated Press (from 1928?); monthly; standard pulp, becoming digest-size in Feb. 1940; editors E. V. Odle (1926-1935?), Clarence Winchester (in 1939); not to be confused with the Victorian magazine or the US pulp of the same title, this was predominantly a reprint magazine of the world’s best short stories, much in the style of the American periodical Golden Book; it occasionally published new fiction, notably “Bianca’s Hands” (1947) by Theodore Sturgeon; also published much material by Lord Dunsany, Joan Aiken (who was on the editorial staff in the 1950s), Ray Bradbury, Gerald Kersh, Hugh B. Cave, Edward D. Hoch.
