  • Note: Title: Fantastic Universe Publisher: King-Size Publications, Inc.[63]; Great American Publications, Inc. [6] Editor: Sam Merwin, Jr. [3]; Beatrice Jones [2]; Leo Margulies [26]; Hans Stefan Santesson [38] Issues: 69 From Tuck's Encyclopedia of Science Fiction and Fantasy: This magazine began as the first $0.50 sf magazine since the old quarterlies, but soon came down to $0.35. It was originally of quite reasonable standard but fell off considerably in its later years. From 1957 it featured many "flying saucer" articles, both pro and con. A series of articles by L. del Rey in 1958 were of note. Although the magazine had a broader story scope than the others in the science fiction field it published little of importance. Of Australian interest were a number of short stories by D. Stivens and by F. B. Bryning. "Fannotations," a fan review column by Belle C. Dietz, began appearing in Nov, 1959, following the change in publisher. The Detroit SF Convention was written up in Nov 1959. S. Moskowitz wrote two sf history articles which were well illustrated. Santesson compiled an anthology from the magazine - The Fantastic Universe Omnibus (1960, 1962 British paperback; 1968 U.S. paperback).
