AMAZING STORIES TO LAUNCH KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN
Plans Quarterly Issues Beginning August 2018
Hillsboro, NH, February 2nd, 2018
The Experimenter Publishing Company is proud to announce that it will be reviving Amazing Stories as a professional science fiction print magazine. The first issue is planned for August, to be available at WorldCon in San Jose; several well-known writers have already committed to contributing to it. The magazine will be published on a quarterly basis after that.
Hugo Gernsback published the premier issue of Amazing Stories back in April 1926. It was the world’s first science fiction magazine and Amazing went on to publish works by writers now recognized as giants in the field, such as Jules Verne, H. G. Wells, E. E. “Doc” Smith, Robert A. Heinlein, Issac Asimov and others. For the last five years, Amazing has been a social website that has published primarily non-fiction articles, although it has also produced three issues of fiction, as well as reprints of classic issues.
In order to make this dream a reality, we need your help. Starting March 1, 2018, we will be running a Kickstarter campaign to raise seed funding for the magazine. Premiums will include: subscriptions, signed copies of books; editing of short stories; getting your image on the cover of the magazine; and much more.
Please contribute and help us let all fans know of our plans. With your support, we will be able to bring this iconic science fiction magazine back!
