This magazine of science fiction, fantasy and cartooning was created and edited by Alain Chabot and John Bell. After a false start in 1975 when Chabot thought of the title and first attempted to get the magazine off the ground, a fortuitous meeting with John Bell at Halycon 1 – the first Halifax SF Convention in 1976 brought the magazine to publication with the first issue in the Summer of 1978. Shortly after the first issue Chabot left. John Bell tried to carry on alone but Borealis 1-2 Spring 1979 was the last issue.
