(1) A 50s Prozine
Orbit Science Fiction was a digest-sized magazine that ran for a total of only five issues during 1953-1954. The editor credited on the masthead was Jules Saltman, but Donald A. Wollheim bought all the stories published. At the time Wollheim was working at Ace Books and this accounts for his anonymity.
Authors who appeared in the five issues included August Derleth (whose Tex Harrigan appeared in every issue), Charles Beaumont, Mack Reynolds, Richard Matheson, Philip K. Dick, Chad Oliver, Alfred Coppel, Gordon R. Dickson, Michael Shaara, Jack Vance, and Wollheim himself (under his Martin Pearson and David Grinnell bylines).

(3) An Original Anthology Series
Orbit was a series of original anthologies edited by Damon Knight starting in 1966. The stories ranged from great to too experimental for most fans and was more than a bit controversial for that reason. At its best it marked a major turning point in SF.
