Far West

Total Issues: 24

Subtitled "America's Leading Western Fiction Monthly" (even when it was quarterly), Far West started as a digest western which had a rather cheap look to it, but then switched to a larger format in 1980. The covers are decent, but the interior art is poor, and the authors tend to be unknown (although Wayne Barton had stories between 1978 and 1981).

Stories from Far West won the Western Writers of America Spur Award every year from 1978 to 1981, probably because it was the only short western fiction magazine being published at the time.

The most successful and longest running occult magazine. Devoted entirely to non-fiction, it is still being published today. It was started pseudonymously by Ray Palmer while he was still an editor at Ziff-Davis. It was a sister publication to Other Worlds and early issues may be of some interest to collectors for the large number of SF authors who crossed over to its pages, as well as the many striking SF-style covers done by artists like Malcolm Smith, Harold McCauley and James Settles.
