About this Item

Evanston, IL: Clark Publishing Company, 1953. The December, 1953 issue of Fate Magazine (issue no.45) 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 perfect-bound wraps, 130 pp. A Near Fine copy - very near fine - with almost nothing to point to; micro-touching at spine and a touch of fade at left side of front cover (scan). As always in 50s pulps, some modest age-toning to the newsprint paper pages, which remain fully supple. See scans. Very high grade condition for a periodical which often shows substantial wear from use. See scans. See the scanned image of the contents page for the articles herein, which cover such topics as Divination (Comstock Lode), Ghosts, Schumann's Lost Concerto, Spirit Authors, The Fair Goddess Sarasvati, Great Lakes Anchor Mystery, ESP, Pre-Fortean, Chimera Blood, Math Prodigy, Through the Barrier, and of course much, much else, including the standard Departments, always engrossing in themselves, all on various other 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. Please see scans. l52n.
