Lafferty 's first story appeared in Science Fiction Stories in the January issue, shortly before the magazine was closed down. Charles Hornig was the editor of all 12 issues of the first incarnation of Science Fiction , and of the first five issues of Future Fiction. Robert W. Lowndes was the editor of all subsequent issues of both titles.
