    Tales of Fantasy & the Supernatural. “...a quality paperback periodical, featuring fictional human encounters with Northwest mythic creatures; featuring also true accounts of transcendence and the supernatural.”




    The Satellite    (about)
    “Official Organ of the Liverpool S F A”, 57 Beauclaire Drive, Liverpool 15. The Satellite starts off in October 1938 as the “Official Organ of the Liverpool Science Fiction Association”. However, in May 1939, it comes under the auspices of the national SFA and remains so until the SFA is suspended around November 1939 after war is declared. The effect of ’going national’ in May 1939 seemed to have the effect of having less fiction in the fanzine, which is then reversed in November 1939. A further interesting feature is the volume of correspondence that came from the USA. Details supplied by Alistair Durie.
