Life (US)

Country: US

Initially a humorous magazine noted for its art by Gibson; authors included John Kendrick Bangs, Brander Matthews, Robert Benchley. The title was bought by Henry Luce in 1936 and turned into a very different type of magazine. Although almost wholly non-fiction (like other Luce publications, such as the news-weekly, Time), it published occasional pieces of fiction, including "The Silence of the Sea" by Vercors (1943), "The Old Man and the Sea" by Ernest Hemingway (1952), "The Bridges of Toko-ri" by James Michener (1953) and "The Kilimanjaro Machine" by Ray Bradbury (22-Jan-1965).
