    Apparently an “ashcan” issue published for trademark purposes. Ziff-Davis issued a large number of these in the late 40’s but the purpose of this one is not certain. It is known that Howard Browne planned to convert Amazing Stories to a large-size, semi-slick format in 1950 but was thwarted by paper rationing when the Korean War started. This issue may have been printed to protect a modified version of Amazing’s title and logo.

    Amazing Adventures (Hamilton & Co. 1946)    (about)
    An alternate title for the first issue of Strange Adventures, it appeared only in a blurb on the contents page. It has been persistently, and erroneously, reported as a separate title.
