Scribner's Monthly

see under The Century Magazine


A West-Coast magazine which always lost money but strove to develop new writers. Despite its title, it was not a magazine of movie scripts (although it did gain some funding from film-industry sources). Circulation peaked at 50,000+. Published Ray Bradbury's first professional story ("It's Not the Heat, It's the Hu--," 2-Nov-1940), though he was never paid for it; also early work by Louis L'Amour and some pieces by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

"The publication is digest size (approx. 7in by 5in). Front cover has a banner title across the top, SEASONS, while across the bottom is the statement "A Magazine of Short Stories and Articles". Also on the cover is the date Summer, 1949 and the price (1/3). The contents page simply gives the title as "SEASONS Edited by G E Ellis, Bourton, Dorset. A Peke Publication" and the rear cover states "Printed by The Kenion Press, 216 High Street, Slough, Bucks". Internally it looks like a paperback, the only indications that it is viewed as a magazine are on the front cover and in the editorial on page 2, which begins "SEASONS makes its first appearance when the summer holidays are in full swing." There is no advertising anywhere within the publication nor any mention of future issues or previous publications from Peke. Searching the BL on-line catalogue for either "Peke Publication" or "Ellis G E" produces no results so I am left with feeling that this is probably the only issue of the magazine."
