Evanston, IL: Clark Publishing Company, 1948 Evanston, IL: Clark Publishing Company, 1948. The Fall, 1948 issue of Fate Magazine (Volume 1, Number 3) 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. This Fall 1948 issue - the third issue ever - bears one of the handful of truly iconic Fate covers, that being "The Red River Witch" (see scan). 12mo, illustrated staple-bound wraps, 128 pp. A Near Fine copy - and this one is as near fine as near fine gets, with just touch micro-edgewear and an almost indiscernible degree of color fade as you look toward the spine. See scans. Standard toning to the interior newsprint-grade pages, but these are supple, clean and and unchipped. Highest Grade, particularly for a periodical which often shows substantial wear from use. This issue features articles on the memorable Red River Witch, Charles Fort, a Kenneth Arnold reprise on phantom lights in Nevada, The Valley of Never-Come-Back, America's White Sunworshippers (A Thor Heyerdahl piece), The Flying Jigsaw Puzzle, America's Most Famous Ghost Story, The Temple Girls of India, The Black Art, Two Girls, One Body, The Devil, ESP events and of course much, much else, including the standard Departments, always engrossing in themselves. 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. Please see scans. l50n

Webster, Robert N. (Editor)

Chicago: Clark Publishing Company, 1949 Chicago, IL: Clark Publishing Company, 1949. The Winter, 1949 issue of Fate Magazine - Volume 1, Number 4, a scarce and without doubt an especially seminal issue in the first year of 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, 96 pp. A (startlingly) almost Near Fine example - much better than Very Good. Some touch wear at points, faint rubbing on rear cover, and of course the inevitable age-toning to the still-very-supple newsprint pages. See scans. Surprisingly High Grade condition for a periodical which often shows substantial wear from use even in its much later years. The content of this issue places it - IMHO - right beside that of the first issue. Cover illustration depicts Colonel P.H. Fawcett, the lost Amazonian explorer, as being of somewhat shrunken head after his (claimed herein) finding by Dr. Eckener. Other serious stick-to-the-ribs topics include two meaningful early UFO sighting pieces (one being the 7-24-48 "Spaceship" sighting by an EAL pilot above Montgomery), The Phantom of Pleskau Airfield; "Was Joan of Arc's Death Faked?"; The Lost Planet; The Mysterious Palladino; The Lerasle Affair; Automatic Writing; Precognition; Modern Methuselahs; an Early Criswell Predicts; and more. Already, at this time, a Tour de Force of enthusiastic updates on the 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 very rare issue. Please see scans. LT23

Chicago : Clark Publishing Company, 1949 Chicago: Clark Publishing Company, 1950. The Winter, 1949 issue of Fate Magazine - Volume 2, Number 2, a very scarce and richly-laden early issue of 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, 96 pp. A (startlingly) almost Near Fine example - much better than Very Good. Several very small touch points of wear, and not much else to note (scans). The inevitable age-toning to the still-very-supple newsprint pages is even less pronounced than in most more recent issues. See scans. Surprisingly High Grade condition for a periodical which often shows substantial wear from use even in its much later years. Contents run a wide gamut; cover illustration depicts Rudolph Valentino; the lead article, by the estimable Vincent Gaddis (progenitor of the "Bermuda Triangle" name and concept) relates to the "Death Seance" which may have foretold Valentino's demise. Other serious stick-to-the-ribs topics include Nikola Tesla's Miracle Mind; Thomas Edison and the Little People (nano-type creatures Edison believed compose our souls); Thinking Horses; Precognition; Morgan Robertson; Weeping Tomb; Haunted Music; Philippines Phantom; Tumacacori Treasure; The Areoi; Inherited Memory; Criswell Predicts; and more.

This Fall 1948 issue - the third issue ever - bears one of the handful of truly iconic Fate covers, that being "The Red River Witch" (see scan). 12mo, illustrated staple-bound wraps, 128 pp. A Very Good copy, with some soil and wear at both spine ends (see scans), and touch micro-wear at the cover periphery (scans). Remarkably little of the inevitable interior-pages age-toning here - some, but not much at all by comparison to others. In fact, this particular piece has less of that than any example of seen. Still supple as well, of course. Higher Grade, for a periodical which often shows substantial decline. This issue features articles on the memorable Red River Witch, Charles Fort, a Kenneth Arnold reprise on phantom lights in Nevada, The Valley of Never-Come-Back, America's White Sunworshippers (A Thor Heyerdahl piece), The Flying Jigsaw Puzzle, America's Most Famous Ghost Story, The Temple Girls of India, The Black Art, Two Girls, One Body, The Devil, ESP events and of course much, much else, including the standard Departments, always engrossing in themselves.

Webster, Robert N. (Editor)

Evanston, IL: Clark Publishing Company, 1955 Evanston, IL: Clark Publishing Company, 1955. The April, 1955 issue of Fate Magazine (Volume 8, Number 4) 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. This April 1955 issue features a now somewhat laughable cover, depicting the ancient ruins of Great Zimbabwe through the eyes of Karl Mauch and earlier amateur archaeologists who believed the ruins to have been originally built by King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba - though the article within treats their origin to be a mystery. In fact, Great Zimbabwe is now believed to have been built, between the 11th and 15th centuries, by the ancestors of the indigenous Shona people. 12mo, illustrated staple-bound wraps, 130 pp. A Fine copy - a true rarity among examples of Fate magazine, which was inexpensively produced. The spine is even perfect, which is almost unheard of. The inevitable toning to the newsprint pages within is modest and even, and the pages, of course, remain supple. Highest Grade, for a periodical which often shows substantial decline. In addition to that cover article, this issue features articles on Reincarnation, Psychometry, Dancing Furniture, Palmistry, Dowsing, the Drummer of Tedworth, Canada's Indian Healer, a Phantom Hitchhiker, and of course much, much else, including the standard Departments, always engrossing in themselves; here, an ad on the back cover even invites us to..Join the Mayans?

Fate Magazine - True Stories of the Strange, The Unusual, The Unknown / July, 1955. Oracle of Delphi, Ghost Train, Reincarnation, Psychokinesis, Psycho-Biology, Clear Lake Ghost, Voices of the Kwei, Mischievous Skeleton

Webster, Robert N. (Editor)

Evanston, IL: Clark Publishing Company, 1955 Evanston, IL: Clark Publishing Company, 1955. The July, 1955 issue of Fate Magazine (Volume 8, Number 7) 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. This July, 1955 issue carries on the titillating-cover tradition, features a now somewhat titillating cover, depicting scene from the ancient Oracle of Delphi mystery, with a very fetching lass being the conduit for the prognostications (which may, in fact, be a reasonably accurate representation, in this case). 12mo, illustrated staple-bound wraps, 130 pp. Very Good; fairly notable damage at spine top (scan) and a closed tear at mid right edge, front covers (scan). Otherwise - quite sharp, with just standard age-toning to the still very supple pages. In addition to that cover article, this issue features articles on a Ghost Train, Reincarnation, Psychokinesis, Psycho-Biology,the Clear Lake Ghost, Voices of the Kwei, a Mischievous Skeleton, and of course much, much else, including the standard Departments, always engrossing in themselves. 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. Please see scans. l34n
