AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The first magazine devoted solely to science fiction, Amazing Stories helped initiate pulp fiction's fascination with the genre. Its reputation varied widely over the years, from periods in which its content was regarded as creative and engaging (such as under the editorship of Cele Goldsmith and, later, Ted White) to periods when it operated as a reprint magazine, often without seeking reprint permissions (such as when it was under the management of Sol Cohen).

Amazing Stories went through a range of name changes, often accompanied by a brief hiatus in publication (usually a brief as one or two months). The names under which the magazine appeared are as follows:

  • Amazing Stories: Apr. 1926 to Feb. 1958.

  • Amazing Science Fiction: Mar. 1958 to Apr. 1958.

  • Amazing Science Fiction Stories: May 1958 to Sep. 1960.

  • Amazing Stories: Oct. 1960 to Jul. 1970.

  • Amazing Science Fiction Stories: Sep. 1970 to Feb. 1979.

  • Amazing Stories: May 1979 to Aug. 1980.

  • Amazing Science Fiction Stories Combined with Fantastic: Nov. 1980 to Nov. 1984.

  • Amazing Science Fiction Stories Combined with Fantastic Stories: Jan. 1985 to Mar. 1985.

  • Amazing Science Fiction Stories: May 1985 to Jan. 1986.

  • Amazing Stories: Mar. 1986 to Summer 2000.

  • Amazing Stories: September 2004 to Mar. 2005.
