Does anyone know why Strange Worlds was cancelled?


Just a guess, but both Strange Worlds and World of Fantasy ended their run with a cover date of August 1959 (SW#5 & WOF#19). This was the height of the limited distribution agreement after the Atlas Implosion; I believe they were limited to 8 books per month which also alternated in some Western & Romance titles.

With both TOS & TTA taking off (they each had 4 issues out by then), it's possible that Stan & Co. decided to focus on the "Big 4" PHM titles and simply let SW & WOF die off to make way for the "new" breed of monster books.

Good question!
