Science Fiction Quarterly (UK) [1943]

Total Issues: 2

Gerald G. Swan published two magazines in 1943 entitled The Moon Conquerors and Into the Fourth Dimension. These were the titles of the lead stories but each was, in fact, a nearly complete reprint of an issue of the US Science Fiction Quarterly.

The covers were extremely crude imitations by unknown artists of the corresponding covers of the original magazines, printed in monochrome blue, presumably a war-time austerity measure.
