Der Orchideengarten

Der Orchideengarten ('Garden of Orchids'; subtitled Phantastische Blatter or 'Fantastic Pages') was a Munich, German magazine that appeared for 51 issues from January, 1919 until November, 1921. Founded four years before the American magazine Weird Tales was launched in March 1923, it is hailed as the first fantasy magazine. Also described as largely 'supernatural horror', it was edited by World War I correspondent and freelance writer Karl Hans Strobl and Alfons von Czibulka, published by Drerlanderverlag. It had 24 pages per issue printed on rough book paper.

The magazine included a wide selection of fantastic stories by famous foreign authors such as Dickens, Pushkin, Charles Nodier, Maupassant, Poe, Voltaire, Gautier, Washington Irving, Hawthorne, H. G. Wells, Victor Hugo, and Karel and Josef Capek. German language writers for the magazine included Strobl, H.H. Schmizt and Leo Perutz. Illustrations included works by Gustave Dore, Tony Johannot, Rolf von Hoerschelmann, Otto Linnekogel, Karl Ritter, Heinrich Kley, and Alfred Kubin. (wikipedia)
