Pyramid R-962 The Unknown 5 VG
The Unknown Five
Edited By D. R. Bensen
Cover by John Schoenherr
Unknown was a magazine dedicated to fantasy and horror, where stories that weren't "scientific" enough for it's sister magazine Astounding could be published. A casualty of the paper shortage of World War II, and never brought back after the end of that conflict, Unknown is now a distant memory. But much of its work lives on in anthologies.
Read and enjoy these tales, and try to imagine what it was like, in the pre-TV era, to find a magazine full of such stuff at your corner newsstand every month.
First Pyramid printing, 1964. Clean cover with edge and corner wear. Spine is rubbed across top, clean and uncreased. Pages are off-white, binding tight and square.
