A short-lived [[FantasyGenre fantasy-]] and [[HorrorGenre horror-fiction]] companion to //[[ThrillingWonderStories Thrilling Wonder Stories]]// and the rest of the [[ThrillingPublications Thrilling Group]], it featured many of the same contributors as the other [[BetterPublications Better Publications]] magazines and //[[WeirdTales Weird Tales]]//. Despite publishing some interesting fiction, such as [[WellmanManlyWade Manly Wade Wellman]]'s "The Changeling" in the first issue, it is not well-remembered today.
**Publication range:** February 1939-February 1941>>1939 was a banner year for [[FantasyGenre fantasy pulps]]; [[StreetandSmith Street and Smith]]'s //[[UnknownMagazine Unknown Fantasy Fiction]]//, the sf/fantasy [[MunseyFrankA Munsey]] reprint magazine //[[FamousFantasticMysteries Famous Fantastic Mysteries]]//, and [[ZiffDavis Ziff-Davis]]'s (initially mostly [[FantasyGenre science-fictional]]) //[[FantasticAdventures Fantastic Adventures]]// all joined //[[WeirdTales Weird Tales]]// on the newsstands, as did a new magazine from the [[ThrillingPublications Thrilling Publications]] group (which would also add the sf title //[[StartlingStories Startling Stories]]// the same year), the modestly titled //Strange Stories//.
Edited anonymously by [[WeisingerMort Mort Weisinger]], //SS// featured a mix of fiction rather similar to that of //[[WeirdTales Weird Tales]]//, with a slightly less gothic sensibility than //[[WeirdTales Weird]]// and lacking the [[FantasyGenre heroic fantasy]] component stressed in the other magazines. In the first issue, February 1939, along with a long editorial column attributed to Mephistopheles, there were stories by such //[[WeirdTales WT]]// and [[ThrillingPublications Thrilling Group]] veterans as [[BlochRobert Robert Bloch]] (two stories, one as by "Tarleton Fiske"), [[KuttnerHenry Henry Kuttner]] (two stories, one as by "Keith Hammond," which playfully drew not only on Lovecraftian [[CthulhuMythos Cthulhu Mythos]] motifs but specifically on Bloch's own contributions to that Mythos, notably the "forbidden" book //The Mysteries of the Worm//), [[KlineOtisAdelbert Otis Adelbert Kline]], [[FarleyRalphMilne Ralph Milne Farley]] and [[DerlethAugust August Derleth]] and [[SchorerMark Mark Schorer]].
Wellman's "The Changeling" is perhaps the best-remembered story from that first issue, and one of the few from the magazine's run of thirteen bimonthly issues to be cited by historian Mike Ashley as rising above the general run of competence.
[[QuinnSeabury Seabury Quinn]], [[RussellEricFrank Eric Frank Russell]], [[BrackettLeigh Leigh Brackett]] and [[PriceEHoffman E. Hoffmann Price]] were among the other notable contributors to the magazine; Ashley has noted that Weisinger's moving on from the [[ThrillingPublications Thrilling]] pulp line to edit //Superman// comics was coincident with, and probably resulted in, the folding of //SS// with the February 1941 issue.
