Ultimate Reprint Group

From 1965 to 1975 Sol Cohen's Ultimate Publishing Group published a bewildering variety of all-reprint magazines, reprinting from issues of Amazing Stories and Fantastic.

The most complex sequence started with the launch of Science Fiction Classics in 1967. Following the sixth issue a bewildering sequence of title changes began. The seventh issue was titled SF Adventure Classics. This was followed by Strange Fantasy: #s 8, 9 and 10. After that SF Adventure Classics #8 was issued, which had the retroactive effect of splitting off the Strange Fantasy issues into their own sequence, which continued through #13.

SF Adventure Classics #8 was followed by Space Adventures #9, 10 and 11. A title change back to SF Adventure Classics appeared to take place with the next issue, #12. However, shortly afterward a Space Adventures #12 also appeared and continued the original sequence, eventually concluding with #14. Thus was the second sequence of SF Adventure Classics retroactively split off to form its own sequence, which continued for several more years.
