''Astounding Science Fiction'' (later ''Magazine/{{Analog}}''), ''Unknown'' (also known as ''Unknown Worlds''), and ''Galaxy'' published generally high quality fiction. ''Magazine/AmazingStories'', ''Weird Tales'' and ''Startling Stories'' and others occupied the middle strata while ''Captain Future'', ''Planet Stories'' and many, many others published the more shamelessly trashy material. (''Unknown'' and ''Weird Tales'' actually published mostly fantasy and horror, though individual ScienceFiction stories and elements would get incorporated in the stories too.) They specialized in imaginative stories of ScienceFiction, with the less highbrow magazines in particular having a good deal more "Boys Own Adventure" flair. The actual name ''Weird Science'' comes from EC Comics ComicBook, which tended to use the KarmicTwistEnding or, more rarely, the CruelTwistEnding. (EC also published ''Weird Fantasy'', actually another ScienceFiction comic, and merged the two titles later.)
