US Digest-size magazine, published by Avon Books, edited by Donald A Wollheim, and – as with its companion series, Avon Fantasy Reader treated by Wollheim as an Anthology series [see his entry, therefore, for list of titles] but by contemporary readers as a Magazine. It had a policy similar to that of its companion, but featured sf – mostly of routine pulp quality – rather than fantasy reprints. There were three issues, two in 1951 and one in 1952. Both magazines were terminated when Wollheim left Avon Books in 1952 and were superseded by Avon Science Fiction and Fantasy Reader. [JC/MJE/MA]
