US Pulp magazine, thirteen bimonthly issues February 1939 to February 1941, published by Better Publications Inc; edited by Mort Weisinger, though uncredited. A companion magazine to Startling Stories and Thrilling Wonder Stories, Strange Stories was devoted to supernatural and weird fiction, in not very successful competition with Weird Tales. Most of its covers were by Earle K Bergey or Rudolph Belarski. Its contributors included August Derleth, Henry Kuttner and Manly Wade Wellman, under their own names and various pseudonyms. Although its companion magazines always publicized each other, they hardly mentioned Strange Stories. The magazine has remained remarkably little known. [MJE]
