Weird World

UK magazine, quarto-format on poor book paper sufficient to appear like a slim Pulp magazine. Two undated issues, 1955-1956, published by Gannet Press, Birkenhead; edited anonymously. Weird World printed a mixture of sf and fantasy, including some reprints. The fiction was of fairly low quality, though not as bad as the material published by Gannet Press under its original owners. The magazine is very rare, but only a completist would want it. The advertised companion magazine, Fantastic World, never appeared because of a printer's strike that also killed Weird World.
