The Magazine of Fantasy. 1949.

(Anthony Boucher) Magazine of Fantasy [and:] Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Vol. 1, nos. 1–2, 1949-50.

First two issues of this influential magazine, founded by Anthony Boucher and Francis J. McComas and still in publication today. The design is by George Salter.

Philip K. Dick wrote of his friend: “Tony Boucher was gone. But I am still a writer, because of him. Whenever I sit down to start a novel or a story, a bit of the memory of that man returns in me. I guess he taught me to write out of love, not out of ambition. It’s a good lesson for all activities in this world.”

No. 30.
