Air Wonder Stories

Total Issues: 11+66+111+2=200

Merged into Startling Stories after the last issue as Thrilling Wonder Stories. Numbering was resumed in 1957 by the anthology series Wonder Stories, which had two issues although they are really two printings of the same anthology with one story substitution. It is assumed that they were issued at intervals designed to preserve the trademark on the title.

A series of similar anthologies were issued annually, starting in 1964, under several different titles. See Treasury of Great Science Fiction Stories, Great Science Fiction, and Science Fiction Yearbook.
