The New Wave
The New Wave
At the end of the 1950s, Britain had three regular science fiction magazines, all published by Nova Publications and edited by John Carnell: New Worlds, Science Fantasy, and Science Fiction Adventures. Reprint editions of many of the American magazines also circulated in Britain, including Future Science Fiction, Science Fiction Stories, and Astounding Science. These reprint editions ceased when import restrictions were lifted in Britain in 1963. Another magazine that existed briefly in the late 1950s was Phantom, published by Dalrow Publications. In the 1960s, restrictions on the import of foreign periodicals adversely affected Carnell's magazines. Moreover, the growing popularity of pocketbooks in Britain, where science fiction was now regularly available from various publishers such as Panther Books, Four Square Books, and Penguin Books, started to put a dent on magazine distribution and sales. The renaissance of science fiction magazines in the 1960s saw the emergence of a new wave of British authors such as Michael Moorcock and J. G. Ballard.
