Biographical / Historical

Begun in 1950, Worlds of Fantasy was a promising new fantasy serial that published 14 issues between its inception and 1954. The magazine then ceased publication, and was dead until it was revived again in 1968. Most accounts note that it was a good quality magazine, with pieces by the likes of Ursula Le Guin. During this second period, the magazine changed publisher three times in as many years, which likely led to its collapse in 1971.
