    New Worlds Science Fiction (Canada)   (about)
    Canadian reprint edition of New Worlds Science Fiction. Probably started in early 1954 and continued through 1956, ended due to a strike, and started back again with issue 99, and then continued to 142. As far as is known the contents were identical to the UK issues but issues were dated a month or two later.
