Marvel Science Stories was begun in 1938 with that name. Over the course of the publication, it changed names four times over fourteen years. The other titles were Marvel Tales ('39-'40), Marvel Stories ('40-'41), and Marvel Science Fiction ('51-'52). In total, there were fifteen issues published, with about two coming out a year. There was a nine-year hiatus from 1941 to 1950, during which nothing was published. Marvel Science Stories was one of the first magazines to take off during the pre-World War II rise in popularity, but it was not widely accepted by a general audience due to its hyper-fascination in sexual themes. When Keyes took over as publisher, the themes diversified, but it was not enough to change Marvel Science Stories's reputation. The magazine ceased publication in 1952.
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.
