Biographical / Historical

Dynamic Science Fiction, for the brief period of its publication (1952 to 1954), acted as a companion to editor Robert A. W. Lowndes' two other SF magazines: Future ScCience Fiction and Science Fiction Quarterly. Columbia Publications, which ran the trio of magazines, did not allow any single magazine to be published every month: by creating an unofficial 'trio' of science fiction magazines, Lowndes was able to sidestep this restriction. The magazines occasionally shared columns and contributors. Albeit short-lived, 'Dynamic' is notable for sizeable proportion of letters from readers and dedication to covering fan happenings.
