    Fantastic Science Fiction   (about)
    According to Walter Gibson all of the stories in this magazine were written either by himself or Ed Burkholder. Gibson could only identify one of his pseudonyms. One of the bylines is a known Burkholder pseudonym. J. Randolph Cox, who prepared a massive bibliography of Gibson’s work, examined the remainder of the stories and is of the opinion that the two Bruce Crandall stories are probably by Gibson, and that the others are probably not. The bylines have been annotated appropriately.
