Marvel Science Stories eBook
February 1939
Total Pulp Experience. These exciting pulp adventures have been beautifully reformatted for easy reading as an eBook and features every story, every editorial, and every column of the original pulp magazine.
Marvel Science Stories! The name alone conjures up visions of science-fiction thrills. When science fiction surged in popularity in the 1930s, Western Fiction Publishing Co., never ones to ignore a trend, jumped into the genre with both feet. Mystery Tales, Detective Mysteries, Marvel Tales and others were all part of their stable of magazine titles. Only five issues were published of Marvel Science Stories beginning with the August 1938 issue. Starting with the December 1939 issue, the title of the magazine changed to Marvel Tales for two issues and took on a "weird menace" slant, then returned to its science fiction roots under the title of Marvel Stories... for another two issues. The April 1941 issue was the final one... until the magazine was revived in late 1950. Marvel Science Stories presents a compelling view of science fiction before it truly hit its stride, written by some of pulp's most seasoned authors. Marvel Science Stories returns in these vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
Table of Contents:
Great Super-Science Novel
After World’s End
by Jack Williamson
Brain-staggering scientific mystery lay behind the want-ad Barry Horn answered on that October day in 1938. And Dona Keradin, the girl in the carbon crystal, drove him into the amnesic sleep of the cosmic rays, to awake ages thence, when the last of the Earthman were fighting to the death against Malgarth, the Robot monster!
Faster Than Light — Dynamic Science Novelette
by S.D. Sharp
Through a billion miles of cosmic space I searched for Velna’s lost loveliness. And when the all-seeing eye of my ampliscope at last found her — twenty irreducible light years still intervened!
The Second Moon — Dynamic Science Novelette
by R.R. Winterbotham
Orson Welles’ radio presentation of H.G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds” could never have frozen our nation with sheer terror — had America, on that historic night of October 30, 1938, known Roger Sage!
The Weather Adjudicator — Exciting Short Story Of Days To Come
by Stanton Coblentz
With unprecedented scientific daring Dictator Strumpf sought to regiment an entire nation’s climate. And his dream would have become fact, had not those giant thermostatic controls created a ghastly social crisis!
Vast Beyond Concept — Exciting Short Story Of Days To Come
by Hal Remson
What were the dark nebulae, the so-called “sink-holes” in space — masses so vast that even light was warped back? And had those four desperate earth-creatures at last found in them the one thousand million millionth fragment of the universe adapted to life as they knew it?
A Sensational Article
Atlantropa — The Improved Continent
by Willy Ley
A sensational scientific solution for land-grabbing, war-crazy Europe!

Excursion to Possibility
Conducted by Donald Dale

This Month’s Cover:
S-f fans clamored for a cover by Paul, and we brought him back to science fiction, after several years’ absence, to do the November MARVEL cover. More recently we’ve been receiving insistent demands for a cover by s-f’s favorite black-and-white artist — and we engaged the inimitable Wesso to depict a thrilling scene from Jack Williamson’s book-length novel, “After World’s End.”
