History of Amazing Stories Quarterly

Amazing Stories Quarterly was a pulp science fiction magazine that ran from 1928 to 1934. The original creator and editor was Hugo Gernsbeck, with the first issue being published in the winter of 1928. Usually the novel contained original stories, but there were times when it would reprint, like Gernsbeck’s novel Ralph 124C 41+ . When Gernsbeck went bankrupt in 1929, his assistant T. O’Conor Sloane took over for the rest of the periodical’s run. Contributors to Amazing Stories Quarterly \emph> include Miles J. Breuer, Stanton A. Coblentz, and Jack Williamson.
