History of Amazing Stories
Amazing Stories is an American science fiction publication that has run since 1926. It was begun by Hugo Gernsback, and is notable since it was the first magazine that focused soley on science fiction. Over the course of its run, it went under a number of different names. Chronologically, they are: Amazing Stories(1926-1958, 1960-1970, 1979-1980, 1986-present), Amazing Science Fiction(1958), and Amazing Science Fiction Stories(1958-1960, 1970-1979, 1985-1986). In addition to these name changes, Amazing Stories was combined with Fantastic/Fantastic Stories between 1980 and 1986. Despite the multiple changes in editors and publishers, and a number of hiatuses in publication, the series is still currently being published. The History of the Science-fiction Magazine Series by Michael Ashley and the Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Weird Fiction Magazine Index: 1890-2006+ by Stephen T. Miller and William G.
