History & Background (Dossier)
Different Worlds Magazine was founded by the Chaosium in January of 1979. Much to its credit, it remained a magazine devoted to all of the role-playing hobby for its entire life. Issue #38 was the last Chaosium issue of Different Worlds. In May of 1985, publication was resumed by Sleuth Publications. After six issues, ownership of Different Worlds changed one final time. Issue #47 was published in the Fall of 1987 by Different Worlds Publications. It was the last issue to ever see print, although layouts for an issue #48 were presented at GenCon a few years ago. Different Worlds Publications is still in existence, and offers a selection of Different Worlds back issues through the mail. However, despite persistent rumors, Different Worlds magazine has never been resurrected.
