Print Magazines

Tagged: Publication | Theme

1. An entry which would have been superfluous in past editions of this encyclopedia because – with the exception of Centauri Express, which was a magazine in audio-cassette form (> Audiozine) – all Magazines, other than personal hand-written ones, were in print form. This may range from beautifully designed and printed SF Magazines such as Shayol or Ariel: to the most minor of Fanzines as once duplicated from typewritten stencils. It was only with the arrival of the internet and the production of Online Magazines, primarily since 1995, that a new digital form of magazine has emerged. These magazines may be read on screen or downloaded onto an e-book reader. Some may also be printed either via a PDF download or as print-on-demand publications, so many online magazines may also be available in print form, but their primary form is digital.

Print magazines may exist in several formats (> Magazines) usually designated by the physical dimensions or paper quality. See Pulp, Slick, Digest and Bedsheet for further details.

The following is a list of all of the print science-fiction magazines with entries in this work. This includes magazines that have been predominantly in print form even if they have subsequently gone online. For a list of all Online Magazines see that entry. For a list of Academic Journals, non-sf Pulp or Slick magazines, see those respective entries. Sf news magazines and news fanzines are listed under Newszines. For non-academic magazines which are about sf, such as the many examples dealing with sf in Cinema and Television, see 2 below.
