Check GA[edit]

Checking with criterias at Wikipedia:What is a good article?:

  1. "Well-written." Yes, I believe it is.
  2. "It is factually accurate and verifiable. " Yes, it properly references several books that appear to be standard references.
  3. "It is broad in its coverage." As far as I can tell, it is.
  4. "It follows the neutral point of view policy". I can't see how it could not.
  5. "It is stable" -- I don't see why it wouldn't be
  6. "It contains images, where possible, to illustrate the topic." Yes, one cover image should be enough to illustrate the magazine

Factual Error?[edit]

I believe that the version of the magazine that started in 1953 is the second incarnation of Fantastic universe Science Fiction I own a copy of Fantastic Universe Science Fiction; January 1950 Volume 9 No. 1 published by King Size Publications. This implies to me the the magazine was first published in 1942 and ran for at least 9 years.

The Fantastic Universe Science Fiction logo in the upper left corner of the Wikipedia picture is identical the the logo on my 1950 copy which implies a linear connection to the later publications.

Other than this one copy of the magazine in my possession I don't have enough facts to correct the article myself.

Very interesting. Could you possibly post a list of the contents? I'd like to see if it's identical with the vol 9 no 1 that in the usual series. Also, could you take a look at the masthead and see what the copyright date is there? Thanks. Mike Christie (talk) 23:57, 31 May 2009 (UTC)

Correct artist?[edit]

I have a copy of the edition illustrated in the photo. It is in the attic and not readily accessible, but I thought that that particular cover painting was by Emsh. Can you please check? thanks Jellytussle (talk) 16:42, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

I just checked my copy; it is credited to Schomburg on the contents page. Mike Christie (talk) 16:46, 31 January 2010 (UTC)
