US Digest-size magazine. One issue, June 1958, published by Vanguard Science Fiction; edited by James Blish. Vanguard Science Fiction made a promising debut: it included the much-anthologized "Reap the Dark Tide" (vt "Shark Ship" in A Mile Beyond the Moon, coll 1958) by C M Kornbluth, plus what were intended as regular features by L Sprague de Camp and Lester del Rey. However, the decision to discontinue the magazine became inevitable almost before the first issue appeared, when the distributor withdrew. [MJE/MA]
