The Challenge from Beyond
Fantasy Magazine, 1935
'The Challenge from Beyond' was a special "round robin" collaborative-fiction project published by 'Fantasy Magazine' in 1935. It was a reprise of the basic concept behind their collaborative serial science-fiction novel 'Cosmos' from 1933-1934/5. This time they commissioned 2 different stories; 1 science fiction, 1 fantasy. Both were published under the same title. The resulting stories were both much shorter than 'Cosmos', were not sectioned into independent chapters, and were not serialised; appearing in a single edition of the magazine. A total of 10 authors participated in the project; 5 on each story.
