Fury Magazine

Fury Magazine looked for stories that were" full of violence, anger and turbulence; stories that reflect the instability and helplessness of our daily lives; stories that show the dichotomy between the insignificance of our little corner of the universe and the significance that we give to our own lives". It only lasted for two issues.

Future (Science) Fiction

Total Issues: 6+6+3+2+10+17+2+36+21=103

Future started in 1939 as Future Fiction, and then absorbed its sister publication, Science Fiction, at the start of volume 2. It underwent several title variations and was ultimately retitled Science Fiction Stories for its last two issues.

After the war, the two were revived as a combined title, starting the numbering over at volume 1 #1. Science Fiction Stories was then separated from Future and published two issues to test the market for a conversion to digest size. The results were apparently encouraging and shortly afterwards Future changed to digest size.

After three issues the publisher apparently decided that Science Fiction Stories was the stronger title; Future was discontinued with the October 1954 issue and replaced with Science Fiction Stories. However, Future's numbering was continued in the new series of Science Fiction Stories.

Ordinarily this would be considered a simple title change but, to further confuse things, about a year after the title change the publisher revived Future again as a separate title, with a parallel numbering that was also derived from the October 1954 issue of Future.

Note that, from Sep-1955, Science Fiction Stories introduced the phrase "The Original ... " giving the impression that the title was The Original Science Fiction Stories.
