The Thrill Book

Total Issues: 16

While contemporary statements of intent indicate that this magazine was originally intended to have a heavy fantasy orientation, in actuality its fantasy content is probably not much higher than most contemporary adventure fiction magazines, and varies considerably from issue to issue.
