    Magazine focusing on spiritualism, the occult, and the unexplained that began in 1974 with the merger of Psychic Observer (1968–1974) and Chimes (1942–1974). The new magazine simply combined the logos of the pre-existing publications – the former in a crude rendition of Legende, the latter in caps from Sintex. Psychic Observer & Chimes was discontinued after the July–October 1981 issue.
