Biographical / Historical

Begun in 1952, Science Fiction Adventures was a regular science fiction magazine target towards younger audiences. However, Science Fiction Adventures was noted for its ability to tackle and present more serious and difficult topics in a way youth could understand rather than talking down to them. It ran off and on again for nearly twenty years, with a republishing serial also occuring. It ceased publication in 1974.
