From Tuck's Encyclopedia of Science Fiction and Fantasy:
This magzine began with the formation of the fan-financed Nova Publications. Initially it was meant to be a sort of continuaion of W. Gillings' excellent amateur magazine Fantasy Review, and departments from that magazine were carried over. However, business commitments caused Gillings to leave, Carnell became editor, and this aspect was dropped, leaving no departments except occasional book reviews. The fiction policy called for far more fantasy than in New Worlds, the companion magazine. This was generally a short novel, most of which were well received, plus short stories. For a time S. Moskowitz's biographical profiles of noted science fiction and fantasy authors were published (following a US appearance). Quinn and Lewis did most of the cover artwork in the Carnell period; like New Worlds, no interior illustrations were used.
The magazine changed its name to Impulse in 1966.
