Breezy Science Stories

This title probably does not exist. It does occur in the occasional magazine checklist but exhaustive research and inquiries have turned up absolutely no information on it.

The earliest reference to it is in a Bradford Day checklist of the early 1950's. Day lists the title as being British and says that there were at least two issues dated November 1935 and January 1936, although he has no data on either issue.

Copies do not exist in either the British Library or Oxford's Bodleian Library, but many fan publications were not sent to either library so it is possible that, if Breezy Science Stories does exist, it is an early fanzine.

However, no known collector or researcher has ever seen a copy of Breezy Science Stories, so it is likely that this title is apocryphal, and that indexers after Day simply picked up his reference and incorporated it into their own work.
