Review:

"This will be the basic tool for researchers studying the 100-year history of science fiction, fantasy, and weird fiction magazines; it is especially strong for the Pulp Era, 1926 to the early 1950s. . . . The bulk of the volume (Section 1) is an alphabetical listing of 279 English-language magazines from the 1882 Argosy to those appearing in the early 1980s. A lengthy narrative traces each magazine's publishing history and editorial policies. Also included for each entry are bibliographic notes, information on indexing, reprint sources, locations of copies in libraries, title changes, volume numbers, publisher, editors, format, and price. Section 2 provides similar treatment for 15 anthologies with close affiliations to magazines. Other sections include notes on 72 fanzines and academic journals in the field, annotations for 184 non-English-language magazines, an index to major cover artists, and a chronology of magazines by founding date. . . . The review volume provides the researcher with the comprehensive coverage necessary for evaluating this historical and literary phenomenon. It also provides the bibliographic apparatus for documenting these magazines."-Reference Books Bulletin

"This history of American science fiction and fantasy is related closely to the history of its magazines, and this volume provides the histories and discussions of hundreds of genre magazines published between 1882 and 1983."-Booklist

"A collection of publishing histories and editorial policies of 279 English language magazines that publish science fiction, fantasy, and weird fiction in the 20th century would be a significant reference book by itself. Add sections on anthology series, academic periodicals, fanzines, and non-English language magazines and such a work becomes indispensable. In this guide, the length of an entry generally depends on the significance of the magazine under discussion, varying from one to two pages (e.g., Macabre; Space Adventure, to 35 pages (Amazing Stories), or 43 pages (Analog). Contributors are knowledgable (some were editors of the magazines they discuss) and the volume editors are well-known scholars in the field. . . . Intended to provide a historical context for the catalog of magazines, Thomas Clareson's introduction becomes a defense of the genre and describes the difficulty of defining science fiction.' A worthy companion to Michael Cook's Mystery, Detective, and Espionage Magazines."-Choice
