Futures Past

Tagged: Publication

US historical Semiprozine edited by Jim Emerson, published by Jim Mladenovic from Convoy, Ohio, letter-size format, saddle-stapled. Three issues in 1992 and a fourth in 1994.

This ambitious venture, a contribution to the History of SF subtitled "A Visual Guidebook To Science Fiction History", was sadly soon aborted. Each issue was to cover the history of one year in sf; this began in the first issue with the year 1926 (taking the launch of Amazing Stories as marking the beginning of Genre SF), and ended in the fourth with 1929. Articles, biographies, checklists, movie lists and chronologies – all well researched – were interspersed with magazine illustrations and photographs somewhat smudgily reproduced. [PN/DRL]
