Biographical / Historical

Other Worlds Science Stories was begun in 1950. It was noted for its strange and outside-of-the-box science fiction. It also had extremely strong artistic pieces done by illustrators Finlay, Stevens and Bok. However, after some monetary difficulties and a lack of interest, the magazine was combined with Universe in 1957. The History of the Science-fiction Magazine Series by Michael Ashley and the Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Weird Fiction Magazine Index: 1890-2006+ by Stephen T. Miller and William G. Contento was used to gather historical information about this publication.
