Wonder Stories and Related Magazines
In 1929, when the future of Amazing Stories was in the balance, and when he was facing bankruptcy, Hugo Gernsback (with his brother Sidney) defiantly formed Stellar Publishing. Within weeks the first issue of Science Wonder Stories was in production, closely followed by Air Wonder Stories and Science Wonder Quarterly. Science Wonder Stories flourished and, after its first year, it absorbed Air Wonder Stories to become Wonder Stories, which lasted on a monthly schedule (with a couple of gaps) for a further six years. At the same time, Science Wonder Quarterly changed its name to Wonder Stories Quarterly, although that lasted for a mere four years.
Despite a remarkable track-record of above-average stories, Wonder Stories began to suffer from circulation problems by 1935 and in 1936 the magazine was sold to Standard Magazines, who reissued it as Thrilling Wonder Stories. Under this title it lasted almost 20 years before vanishing, with the rest of the group, in early 1955.
