Starlog Magazine
 
Apologies in case this thread has already been discussed.

Any who, Just wondering if anyone else has been, or is a reader of what was once the be all and end all of sci -fi News and gossip. throughout the years (especially the early 70's-80's boom) Fans from across the world united in reading this magazine sharing hopes and dreams for the future of sci fi. Every month guaranteed another look into the ominous world of STARLOG! Who could forget David Gerrold's rants, or the General insight of what may lie ahead in future Technology.

Lets hear it people, any Starlog tales? Any fans?

Peace.

Before everything else..there was Starlog
 
You have brought back fond memories. Starlog magazine came out in 1976 and with it we followed the progress of the latest Sc-Fi movies. Starlog was all we had back then and served us well.

This Wikipedia link is insightful: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starlog

I remember buying a few starlog issues...But I especially remember buying
a LOT of Communicator issues.

I started buying Starlog from 1979 to the early '90s, there in my closet right now. Since there was no Internet back then you got photos and interviews of upcoming science-fiction movies, books and videos. I also collected Fangoria magazines as well.

I first found Starlog with issue #3...used to be THE place outside of Mediascene Preview to get info on upcoming Sci Fi films and tv shows...

They also had their sister magazine Future for a while...

Anyone remember OMNI, the science and sci-fi mag that was put out by Penthouse?

I used to be a subscriber my first issue was number 6 or 7. I haven't thought about it for a while but I bet I still have them . Maybe I should put them on ebay.

They had such major coverage of ST:TMP when it came out...I remember when they ran the first ad, the one that used the painting of the Phase II [i]Enterprise[i] in it...

I've read it from the start and still subscribe. Even with the internet, they still cover things that you can't find much online and go into more depth. Great magazine still!

My first issue of Starlog was #7. I am still a subscriber to the magazine and still have every issue-much to the dismay of my wife! I still enjoy the magazine completely.

Why I haven't thrown any issue out, I have no clue! Nor do I know what to do with them!

I certainly wouldn't throw any out! In fact I would probably be trying to find the six issues I was missing. You have an important collection of sci-fi history. Hang on to them and go back and re-read some of those old issues sometime.
