One of the all-time best science fiction magazines out there has a new home at Archive.org, and you can read it for free.
The collection contains 355 issues, with release dates ranging from 1950-1976. It will not feature the entirety of the original issues, but enough material made the transition to keep sci-fi fans occupied for years. Fans of authors like Isaac Asimov and Robert A. Heinlein now have the opportunity to enjoy some of their less known works, and to discover some great authors that were under appreciated in their time.
The magazine was founded by Horace Leonard Gold in post-World War II America. It quickly became the go-to for science fiction. The magazine stepped away from some of the established elements of the genre and broke ground with its fresh design and focus on stories with plausible science.
Whether you are a fan of the genre or not, this glance into the history of science fiction is eye opening, fascinating, and did we mention its free?
