Future Science Fiction
Entry updated 21 August 2012. Tagged: Publication.
1. Variant title of Future Fiction in its 1950s incarnation.
2. Australian Digest-size magazine. Six numbered, undated issues running from July 1953 to March 1955 (two in 1953, three in 1954, one in 1955) published by Frew Publications, Sydney, edited anonymously by Ronald Forster. Forster was assisted in the selection of material for issue #2 by Vol Molesworth and thereafter by Graham Stone. The stories were primarily reprints from various US sources, but issue #5 (December 1954) carried three new Australasian stories by Frank Bryning, Norma Hemming and John A Vile. Issue #3 (March 1954) also had a new story, "Mixpedition" by Norman E Hartman, a name not otherwise known and a possible alias for Hemming.
In 1967 Page Publications, Sydney reprinted issues #4 and #6 from the original series, but renumbered them #1 and #2 with new covers.
A companion magazine to both versions was Popular Science Fiction. [MA/PN]
