Ray Palmer and Richard Shaver - The Hidden World

Amherst, Wisconsin. The Hidden World. Quarterly Science-fiction/possibly science-fact fan publication. Ray Palmer, editor. Good condition. Clean covers and pages. Binding intact in each of the included magazines. This lot includes the following six issues (of sixteen):

Fall 1961 (issue A-3)
Winter 1961 (issue A-4)
Spring 1962 (issue A-5)
Spring 1964 (issue A-13)
Summer 1964 (issue A-14)
Fall 1964 (issue A-15)

The Hidden World was devoted to propagating Richard Shaver's unconventional ideas about science, anthropology, and history (dnominated "the Shaver mystery") much of which had to do with a malevolent race of subterranean robots that manipulate society with various electromagnetic rays.Shaver had previously embedded his theories in science fiction stories (e.g., "I remember Lemuria,") which his publisher friend Palmer had run in his fanmag "Amazing." Personally, I think that there's something to his theory (seriously).
