Orbit Science Fiction
Orbit Science Fiction was a digest-sized magazine that ran for a total of only five issues during 1953-1954. The editor credited on the masthead was Jules Saltman, but Donald A. Wollheim bought all the stories published. At the time Wollheim was working at Ace Books and this accounts for his anonymity.
Authors who appeared in the five issues included August Derleth (whose Tex Harrigan appeared in every issue), Charles Beaumont, Mack Reynolds, Richard Matheson, Philip K. Dick, Chad Oliver, Alfred Coppel, Gordon R. Dickson, Michael Shaara, Jack Vance, and Wollheim himself (under his Martin Pearson and David Grinnell bylines).
An Australian edition, one issue, appeared in 1954, a reprint of the first American issue.
