Science Fiction had been standard pulp size from its' start in 1939, to 1943, when it was discontinued. None of those 1939-1943 issues are included in this offering. In 1953 and 1954, 2 digest size test issues were published, then in January 1955 regular publication began, and ran until May, 1960. Offered here is the COMPLETE set of the digest size 2 test issues (1953 & 1954), and the subsequent 36 regular publication issues (1955-1960), to a total of 38 volumes in digest size. Of some interest is the fact that the official title of this magazine is "Science Fiction Stories". The prefix "The Original" was a descriptive blurb added in September 1955 to indicate that this was the first magazine to be titled "Science Fiction" way back in the pulp days of 1939. In any event, this is the complete 38-volume set of the digest size Science Fiction Stories or The Original Science Fiction Stories, call it what you will.
