Hallock (1886-1889), John Brisben Walker (1889-1905), William Randolph Hearst (1905- ); monthly; standard format, on coated stock, often with colour illustrations, it became a big slick with the Sep. 1916 issue; editors Joseph N. Hallock (1886-1889), John Brisben Walker (1889-1905), Ray Long (1918-1931); although failing when taken over in 1889, it became a success under Walker in the 1890s, dropping its price to 10 cents in competition with the new-model magazines such as McClure’s and Munsey’s; it serialized Wells’s “The War of the Worlds” (1897) and “The First Men in the Moon” (1900-1901); other authors included Maxim Gorky, W.
