Popular Fiction

see under Man Stories

Popular Flying

An aviation magazine, primarily non-fiction, but famous for initiating Captain W.E. Johns's "Biggles" stories (as by William Earle, from the first issue). Later stories in the series appeared in The Boy's Own Paper and elsewhere.

Incorporated into a new magazine called Aeronautics which ran until 1962 and probably did not contain any fiction.
