Description

First Editions. Three issues, a complete set of this magazine, comprising Vol 1, No 1 (March, 1952), Vol 1, No 2 (May, 1952) and Vol 1, No 3 (July, 1952). Digest-sized magazines. Original colour pictorial covers. Spines a bit leaned, some creases and wear, a very good set.

Comments

STRANGE was a bit of a hybrid magazine, proposing to publish accounts of true happenings, not all of them explainable, in fictional mode - an attempt to capitalize on both crime fiction and true-crime stories. Sporting wonderfully lurid covers, the magazine was a bust, and failed after only three issue. None of the authors published herein are recognizable, although it is quite possible that there was a judicious use of pseudonyms here. An uncommon set.
