Issue Checklist


When it debuted in 1988, Sassy, the brain-child of Australian publisher Sandra Yates, was seen as "a baby-ms.". Launched with the ad campaign, "I'm too sassy to read Teen" and with 25 year-old editor-in-chief Jane Pratt as a perfect foil for the much older editor of Seventeen, Sassy initially got lots of press and had a growing circulation.

The magazine, whose slangy, first-person style was described as "pajama-party journalism" featured articles such as "Guide To A Boy's Body," "My Brother's Gay, Big Whoop," and items on Rupaul, zines, the spoken word scene, and underground filmmakers. Nor did Sassy neglect such issues as the return of flared pants and the Brenda-Kelly-Dylan triangle on "90210."

The magazine was hit by a moral majority boycott in its first year , and shortly thereafter was sold to Dale Lang Publications. Some five years later , plagued by shrinking ad pages, the magazine was sold to Petersen publishing, which publishes Teen as well as Guns and Ammo.

Immediately after the sale, the entire Sassy staff was fired (many of them had been with the magazine since its inception) and the magazine was completely revamped, becoming a bland clone of every other mainstream teen-girl magazine.

Occasionally publishes fiction, e.g. "Run Away" by Cathie Bauer (Jul-1993). Merged with Teen in January 2007.

The Saturday Evening Post

Always featured fiction from the output, often short tales or serials reprinted from other publications.

First golden age was in the late 1840s-1850s when it published (often pirated) leading US and UK writers, including Charles Dickens, Ouida, G.P.R. James, Diana Mulock; declined after Civil War and remained a cheap story paper until bought by Cyrus Curtis in Aug-1897.

Curtis revamped the magazine and circulation grew from 2,231 in 1897 to 726,681 in 1907 and over 2 million by 1922. Artist Norman Rockwell contributed 323 cover paintings, 1916 - 1965.

Authors include Mary Roberts Rinehart, Clarence Budington Kelland, Arthur Train, P.G. Wodehouse (early "Jeeves" stories appeared in the Post first, followed by British publication in The Strand), Conan Doyle ("Maracot Deep" 1927), Morgan Robertson, Stephen V. Benet ("The Devil and Daniel Webster" 24-Oct-1936), Heinlein, Bradbury, C.S. Forester, Gerald Kersh, John Christopher.

Circulation rose from 315,000 in 1902, to 2.7 million in 1933, and almost 3.9 million in 1948.

Note: The latest incarnation seldom publishes fiction, but does run some short light-hearted stories.
