About Amazing Stories Quarterly in brief

Summary Amazing Stories QuarterlyAmazing Stories Quarterly was a U.S. science fiction pulp magazine that was published between 1928 and 1934. It was launched by Hugo Gernsback as a companion to his Amazing Stories, the first science fiction magazine, which had begun publishing in April 1926. Authors whose work appeared in Amazing Stories Quarterly include Stanton A. Coblentz, Miles J. Breuer, Hyatt Verrill, and Jack Williamson. The magazine began to run into financial difficulties in 1932, and the schedule became irregular. The last issue was dated Fall 1934, though the decision to discontinue the magazine was not taken until some time later, as an editorial comment in the May 1935 issue of Amazing Stories mentioned that further issues might still appear.

The first issue contained a reprint of H. G. Wells’ novel When the Sleeper Wakes, though for some reason Wells did not provide Gern’sback with the revised text published in 1910 under the title The Sleeper Awakes; the text printed was that of the original 1899 edition. The following issues included material by Edmond Hamilton, Stanton A CoblENTz, R. F. Starzl, David H. Keller, S. P. Meek, J. Schlossel, and Clare Winger Harris. The final two issues were filled completely with reprints from early issues and from Amazing Stories. After a short period in receivership, they were acquired by Bergan Mackinnon, who sold them on to Bernarr Macfadden’s Teck Publications.
