(Did you mean a different Nova?)

From Fancyclopedia 1, ca. 1944
A designation given by Campbell to stories written on old themes which breathed new life into them. JWC dropped it even quicker than he did "mutant", with a final defiant gesture or two. Nova Press was a publishing house of Ashley, EEEvans, Wiedenbeck, and Perry, in 1942, who soon joined ASP.
