Popular Science Fiction

Australian thin (64pp) Digest-size saddle-stapled magazine. Six issues, undated but July 1953 to March 1955, published by Frew Publications, Sydney; editor not named, but Ronald Forster. It published primarily reprints from US pulps but included some new Australian material by Norma K Hemming and, surprisingly, by US authors, particularly in the final issue which was almost all new material, by Sam Sackett, Jim Harmon and Louis Moore. 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 Future Science Fiction. [FHP/PN]
