US Pulp magazine, one issue, April 1941, published by Manvis Publications, one of the "Red Circle" magazines published by Martin Goodman; edited by Robert O Erisman. Uncanny contained both sf and weird fantasy, including "The Coming of the Giant Germs" by Ray Cummings, but nothing of importance. Erisman suitably sexed up the story titles, for example making David H Keller's innocuous "The Chestnut Mare" appear as "Speed Will Be My Bride". Uncanny was modelled on the "weird menace" pulps that Goodman also published, one of which had been called Uncanny Tales, but which was a different magazine. [MA]
