One of the many reprint Digest-size magazines published by Sol Cohen's Ultimate Publishing Co., employing the reprint rights acquired when Cohen bought Amazing Stories and Fantastic. 21 issues were released, quarterly October 1965-Spring 1971, the first twelve under the title Great Science Fiction, #13-#16 as Science Fiction Greats and #17-#21 as SF Greats.
The contents were mostly short stories by well-known authors, reprinted from the period when Cele Goldsmith edited Amazing and Fantastic. #13 was devoted entirely to Robert Silverberg and #14 entirely to Harlan Ellison. This was one of Cohen's better publications, for he was selecting from an interesting period in the history of his source magazines. [BS]
