About This Item

Evanston, IL: Clark Publishing Company, 1951 Evanston, IL: Clark Publishing Company, 1951. The March, 1951 issue of Fate Magazine, Volume 4, Number 2, a scarce issue in Raymond A. Palmer's now-legendary paranormal-reporting non-fiction enterprise, which began with, in its first issue, Kenneth Arnold's cover account of flying crescents which "skipped like saucers across a pond", an event which, for whatever reason, kicked off the modern era of UFO events. After that, Fate introduced countless events which remain, to this day, fodder for paranormal documentaries and investigation. 12mo, illustrated stapled wraps, 98 pp. Near Fine; just touched at spine ends (scan), and no other salient flaws; even standard 50's-pulps toning to the interior pages is quite moderate here, and of course the pages remain supple. See scans. Very High grade condition for a periodical which often shows substantial wear from use. Uncredited cover art shows the Vision At Necedah, one of the many pieces on the paranormal herein. See the scanned image of the contents page for the articles herein, which cover such topics as astrologer Micer Codro; Blood Curse; Ghost Canyon; Pablo and the Pugot; Brown Mountain Lights; Vision at Necedah; Yeti; and, yes, The Flying Milk Bottles of Petersburg, Virginia. Of course much, much else is here, including the standard Departments, always engrossing in themselves - everything on diversified paranormal or inexplicable phenomena. Interior art and photography is largely uncredited. A piece of paranormal history, and an example of a unique branch of Americana, in very highly collectible condition. A particularly absorbing and very scarce issue. Please see scans. l53n
