Not to brag, or maybe I am ... take your pick, but back in the late 90's I purchased G. Harry's complete Model Rocketry magazine collection ... even has his mailing address on a couple of the issues.
Most issues don't have a label. As I understand it, Harry was upset with the condition of the magazines once they arrived in his mailbox, so he had his issues mailed in a envelope to protect them.
The collection cost me a 'pretty penny' (120,000 pennies to be exact, but it was G. Harry's so I didn't mind ... I was making money hand over fist back in those days and unmarried...).
They were sold on ebay ... not sure if it was Bill Stine or one of the other Stines' selling them ... but the seller was located in Arizona so I guess it was someone close to G. Harry.
I bet it was Dane Boles.
A dark night in a city that knows how to keep its secrets. But high above the quiet streets on the 12th floor of the Acme Building, one man is still trying to find the answers to life's persistent questions. Guy Noir, Private Eye.
A very nice isfdb bibliography with a more complete listing of Harry's articles is available at
None of the listings above include any info on foreign editions of Harry Stine's books.
Here is what I know of foreign editions of Harry's books:
Foreign Translations of Handbook of Model Rocketry:
Missili Con Propulsione A Razzo
(Italian translation of The Handbook of Model Rocketry - 2nd Edition)
Translation by Guido Antolini
U. Mursia & C.
I know the book did not have subsequent editions but I don't know if there were paperback editions.
Some of this book has actually been put online. You can read it, in the original Italian, here.
Livre - Le Livre De Référence De L'Astromodéliste
(French edition of The Handbook of Model Rocketry, most likely the 6th edition since the cover picture is the same)
Translation by Jean-Pierre Seingier
Editeur : Tradu-concept Genre : Fusées ( aéronautique) Langue : français EAN13 : 9782951024403
Bill Stine told me there was a privately published (with permission) Japanese version which was not sold to the general public. As far as Bill knew only roughly 500 copies were published. I have never been able to find any reference to this version anywhere.
Translation of "The New Model Rocketry Manual" from 1975.
Handbuch des Raketenmodellbaus (Taschenbuch)
ESE Electronronics and Scientific Equipment
Hasenmoor, W. Germany 1977

"Man and the Space Frontier" from 1965 was published in:
SATELITES DE LA TIERRA, LOS. Y la carrera por la superioridad en el espacio.
Castilian. FREELAND Ed. Buenos Aires. 1958. Rustica. 1 vols. 20 cm. 190 pags

Número de Páginas: 190
This is really neet - all of this information complements each other very well. If someone hasn't done it already I'll try to compile it all into one complete list.
Now here's an odd item. I have a graphic novel that I bought off of ebay ~10 years ago. The title is 'Open Space' and GHS was the author of one of the stories. And I'm pretty sure (haven't looked at it in a few years - gotta dig it up) that it listed no publisher or publication date (it's on my list, with no information). I hadn't tried looking for anything about it in a long time, so a quick google and wa la, there is a comic book database (I should have known) with this: http://22.214.171.124/creator.php?ID=24365
So here's the interesting part. Going to the Open Space #1 entry there (the only one), goes to the data on the book... but I'm pretty sure that's not the cover I have, and the cover shown there clearly shows the date and publisher (Marvel). I know nothing about comic publishing - could I have a privately published copy - perhaps something that was later bought and published my Marvel?
