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.
