Early comments[edit]

There's another, different Wikipedia article on the same magazine, which I created awhile ago: Unknown magazine. I'm not sure but I think that was before it was possible to put parentheses in an article title. I guess the thing to do now is to combine the articles. Joel Schlosberg

Well, I combined them. It probably needs more work. I hope I kept the spirit of both articles, though of necessity some of the words had to go. Notinasnaid 09:41, 4 Feb 2005 (UTC)


I just checked for copyright renewals; Street & Smith renewed copyright on several of their magazines but not this one, so the covers are all public domain. Mike Christie (talklibrary) 22:09, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Fanzine source[edit]

I've cut this:

Campbell hoped to start publishing Unknown-style fantasy stories in Astounding in addition to science-fiction, and announced this in a December 1943 editorial; however, ASF reader reaction was so hostile that Campbell had to abandon this idea. Nevertheless, some unpublished Unknown stories did end up in ASF.<ref>[ The Unknown ''Unknown''] by [[Will Murray]].</ref>

because the cited fanzine is not a reliable source. It's a pity, as I think the information is interesting and probably accurate; I'll readd it if I can find another source for the data. Mike Christie (talklibrary) 13:45, 14 February 2011 (UTC)
