As I've been able to gather, Serial World Magazine was published for 37 issues ... then beginning with issue 38 through ? it merged into another publication ... what was the name of that publication ?

Also, any links would be helpful.

Serial World begat Serial Report (which recently ceased publication under Boyd Magers)

I was wondering how Serial "WORLD" could have been published for 37 issues, yet Serial Report picked it up at issue 30! ... so I contacted Boyd Magers ... he said ...

"We DO NOT publish SERIAL WORLD and never did. That was another, long
defunct, publication. We took over SERIAL "REPORT" from Jeff Walton w/ #30."

So then, does anyone know who published the 37 issues of Serial "WORLD" ?

I know Jeff Walton was involved with Serial World (editor?). Walton was still involved through the creation of Serial Report (kind of like Son of Serial World) until Boyd took over.

Jeff, where are you? Your contributions to serial literature were appreciated. Walton was involved with writing some good articles for wrestling publications as well.

Thanks Gravy ... found what I was lookin' for ...
"Serial World" issues 38 thru 63 were combined into "Westerns and Serials".

Tiger ... there's also info there on his Wrestling publications.

It looks like this site is still active. Does anyone recommend picking up any of these periodicals at this late date?

I thought it was a good magazine, along with Cliffhanger from World of Yesterday (Yesteryear?). Those two and TEMI were done by some true serial fans.

Bats, of course I recommend SERIAL WORLD and REPORT. Only negative thing is that the style of the early issues changed several times. The first issue was in newsprint, then it became a magazine.
