Marvel Science Stories was a pulp magazine which published a total of fifteen issues in two separate runs. It appeared in August 1938, and the first run lasted until April 1941; it was revived in November 1950 for a further six issues. The last issue was dated May 1952. The editor was Robert O. Erisman. Contributors to the first run included Henry Kuttner and Jack Williamson; the second run published stories by Jack Vance and L. Sprague de Camp, among others. From May to November 1951 the magazine was converted to a digest format, but it reverted to pulp size for the final issue.[1]
